The Promise

The Promise - Nicola Davies

The girl who changed the world with an acorn | BBC Ideas

A powerful story of hope and redemption, which challenges us to think about the way we interact with the natural world. This beautiful animation, The Promise is based on a children's book of the same name.

Year Three took part in a super learning day all about the story the promise written by Nicola Davies. 




Year Three first went outside to gather a selection of leaves. We went on a hunt for the largest, smallest, unusual, brightest in colour and as many different shaped leaves we could find. When we had gathered all of the leaves we came back into the classroom to compare them. We measured our longest and smallest leaves using a ruler. Once we had this information we created bar models to see the difference from our smallest and longest leaf. We then demonstrated our fraction knowledge by expressing our collection of leaves as fractions of amounts.
