STAFF and children at The Walnuts School and St Mary & St Giles School put down the pens and let their gestures, movement, and words do the talking.
No Pens Day Wednesday was held to highlight the importance of speaking and listening as part of the ‘Hello’ campaign.
Classes supporting the project put away written tasks for the day and focused on communicating in other ways.
Several positive results were recorded throughout the day, even in those who were not actively taking part.
In one class pupils handed out special ‘Hello’ campaign stickers to staff and members of the public and in another children recorded information about balanced diets using various art materials.
All pupils were given a certificate at the end of the day for participating.
