On Tuesday, we received a letter from Tameside City Council explaining that they are planning to demolish the Log Lane Tip, the children had to decide whether they wanted to save or destroy the tip. We shared our ideas and had a fantastic debate. The children are going to write a letter to Mr Jonathan Reynolds persuading him to either destroy or save Lodge Lane Junkyard Site!
