Social Housing | Issue Highlights & Thought Leader

The Thought Leaders of this BNC Issue were Michael Faraday School!

Michael Faraday School impressed us with their Final Pieces which showed excellent planning and preparation. Although they didn't all agree with each other about a solution, they gave brilliant reasons for their suggestions and did so clearly and confidently. Throughout the BNC Issue they have contributed lots on the Hub and shown fantastic examples of scepticism. We particularly enjoyed reading their wealth of curiosity rich questions that were sent on to Expert Contributors. Well done!

We were also really impressed by...

We enjoyed watching the confident presentation from Starcron09 and Sassy Savage Princess at Willowtown Primary School. They had clearly learnt lots this term; we spotted key figures and key words that supported their reasons. We also thought the original questions that they asked were great! Watch the whole video here.

Well done to #Sillyfox & #bluefox at Foxfield Primary School. We thought they did really well at explaining the current problem of social housing. It was also good to see them thinking of ways to overcome the lack of social housing. Great work! Watch the full interview.

    A home is were you live and have all memories. It is also a place where you can create new memories . It is where some people like to go and to be proud that they live in a nice house with comfort and warmth.
