New Brighton Catholic School Early Canterbury
SCHOOL AND PLAY. RM 2
We have been studying School and Play in the Early Canterbury Times. We learned how to set our work out in Venn diagrams and we used the Questioning Matrix to make up our questions for our research. We wrote it in our own words. Our big discovery was that school and play in Early Canterbury was different than school and play now.
