War: What good is it for?
One World Day. (Brudenell Primary School, Leeds)
Students from Politics, Law and Geography Departments of the University of Leeds worked with Year 6 children from Brudenell Primary School on the topic: “War, what good is it?” from the 3 different department perspectives.
The children were studying World War 2 as their topic and this event enabled them to reflect further on the reasons for and the results of wars.
The day the children spent at the University with the students was a culmination of work done in school with them, in their school .
Each slide on the 3 power-points relating to Politics, Law and Geography, is the result of an individual child’s work or a pair working together

BRAZILIAN FLOWERS FOR BRITISH STUDENTS
In the city of Leeds , as in all cities of the Northern Hemisphere, now Winter still reigns.
The trees are without leafs, the vegetation disappears under the snow and the flowers will bloom only in the Spring. But, in one of the Global Curriculum Project’s British schools , children are studying the theme Flowers, and they would like to know some of Brazil’s flowers, a country in which they are present all over the year. We answered to their request, and as we’ve taken pictures and tried to describe them , we started to pay more attention to the flowers that make São Paulo and surrounding cities less gray.
