Wednesday 12th January


This afternoon we took part in a class debate linked to our new topic WWII. We have been learning about the policy of appeasement and whether Neville Chamberlain was right to adopt this policy. The children had to debate reasons for and against and were excellent at sharing their examples and coming up with counter arguments!


Ask them about the pro's and con's of appeasement!

This half term our PE focus is going to be dance! We kick started the unit with looking at the classic Charleston dance style. We watched different examples and talked about how everyone added their own unique style and flair to the dance. We also discussed that they all looked like they were having fun so the key part of this dance was to enjoy ourselves!


Watch our dancing in the video below!

This week it is Anti Bullying Week. The focus of this year's Anti Bullying week has been 'One Kind Word'. We have been discussing what it means to be kind and how our actions affect others. Today we thought about the people in our support network and how they help us and thought about words and phrases that promoted kindness. 

Can you think of any words to add to our list?

This half term year 6 have worked towards a whole class reward. They have been collecting golden tickets which got them different rewards which they chose to collate into one big reward!
This afternoon, we’re having a movie afternoon watching Holes which we’ve just finished reading! They’ve got their pyjamas on with their doughnuts and cans of pop! This was the children’s choice about what they wanted to work towards.

I’m so super proud of how they’ve settled into year 6, they’re working extremely hard and they’re excellent role models for the whole school. Keep it up year 6! We’re all so proud of you.
