Census 2021

posted 19 Mar 2021, 05:13 by Website Admin
This week is the week of the national census in England and children across the school have been learning all about what a census is and how it helps us to understand our changing population. At the beginning of the week you should have received a booklet with activities for the children and at the end of the week children will have a certificate to take home. Children in Year 6 have been looking at changes in population in Colchester over the past 100 years and what this means for public services. Other year groups have focussed on the first ever census and how collecting population data helps organisations such as the NHS to plan for the future. We hope that the census lessons the children have taken part in, help them to understand its importance.
