Do we belong in Rotherham?

We have been looking at the Belonging book by Jeannie Baker in P4C this week. A wonderful picture book, with no words at all, that tells the story of a little girl and her changing community.

Our question was – ‘Do we belong in Rotherham?’

What do you think? Please leave a comment below, parents too!!

  4. I am very proud of our school and have always worked in Rotherham schools, so I really feel like I belong here. I think we do need to impact on our ‘place’, no matter where it is in the world – that’s why we work so hard to improve our school and the grounds, or homes and gardens, so yes it is our job Miss Brewin.

  9. When I first moved to Rotherham it was a very pleasant small town . For several years it has had mixed fortunes, but now once more seems to be becoming a pleasant and improving town. CEOs grandma
