Balanced Argument

For our literacy lesson on 11th January, we began looking at the features of a balanced argument. We debated whether or not homework should be banned and worked in pairs to create an argument, with one person arguing for and the other against. Here is a selection of some of those debates.

Katherine Johnson 

In our literacy lesson on 1st December, we played a game called, 'quiz, quiz, trade.' In this, we each had a question or a corresponding answer about Katherine Johnson  and had to find our match. It helped us to remember the key facts about her life. Below are some videos of children recalling some of the key facts.

Year 6 learn.... Portuguese

On Friday 25th September the whole school celebrated European Languages Day. Year 6 chose the country Portugal and did a series of activities about this country. We created a fact file, learnt some phrases and played a Portuguese game. 

Celebration Assembly - Tongue Twister


Sara and Olivia were gutted to not be able to share their tongue twister on Friday's assembly, so they've decided to film themselves and share it with you all! They can't wait to see what is in store for next week's segment!

Important Reminders



Homework will be given out on Friday and expected to be returned by the following Wednesday. 



Outdoor games & Dance: Shorts and a T-shirt

Outdoor games: Shorts/Joggers, T-shirt and trainers. As we are approaching the colder months please send in extra jumpers/ a hoodie for your child to wear for outdoor games as this lesson will still take place outside.

Please ensure your child brings the correct items of their P.E. kit to school and that it is labelled.

We will be doing outdoor games on a Monday afternoon and Dance on a Wednesday afternoon.



Spellings will be given out every Monday and you will be tested on Friday, Spelling is important because it helps to aid your reading and improve your writing.
