PANTS

On Friday 3rd December, we had a discussion about PANTS. We started off by completing a jigsaw of different pants to find the different reasons as to why it was so important.
We discussed the acronym for PANTS and how important it is to understand that we need to keep our private parts private and that we need to speak to a trusted adult if we feel worried about anything. 

We then produced our own pair of PANTS to remind us of the acronym. 

Well done Year 6!

Children in Need

On Friday 19th November, we all came to school in our 'Dress Up' outfits to celebrate and raise money for Children in Need! 

We created a Pudsey money box, bookmark and coaster to celebrate the amazing charity which all look fantastic!

A brilliant way to highlight the importance of Children in Need; well done Year 6!

Road Safety

On Thursday 18th November, we discussed the importance of Road Safety!

We took part in some online modules where we looked at safety, both on the road and in the car. We then created our own Road Safety game where we answered questions correctly to move around the board to see who got to the end the quickest!

A fantastic way to understand Road Safety Year 6; well done!

Anti-Bullying Week

During the week commencing 15th November, we took part in Anti-Bullying Week. 

On Monday 15th November, we all wore odd socks to school to highlight that we understand that even though we all have different traits, we all still need to be treated equally and celebrate how unique we all are!

We then had a discussion about 'One Kind Word' and spoke about the different types of bullying that could happen. We then created posters based on the acronym of STOP! to highlight the importance of anti-bullying and who we can speak to if we need to. 

Well done Year 6; you produced amazing posters!

 

Talk Money Week

In our Maths lesson on Friday 12th November, we discussed money management by looking into online scams and how we can best manage our money in a savings account. 

We started off by discussing genuine and fraudulent companies. We role played scenarios where children had to persuade the rest of the class as to if they were a genuine company or not by asking relevant questions such as if they had a registered charity number and if they needed any personal details. 

We then moved on to discussing what we would buy for £60 and if we saved it, what type of bank account, we could put it into so that we would get the best return on our money. 

We finished the lesson by understanding that sometimes, it is best to save some of our money for a 'rainy day!'

Well done Year 6; a super lesson on money management!

DECCA

On Tuesday 9th November, DECCA came into our classrooms to talk to us about the effects of alcohol and drugs. 

We spoke about alcohol, the different types, the nicknames used for it and the detrimental impacts that too much of it would have on our body. We also had a go at using beer goggles to see how alcohol affects our vision and brain by completing Maths questions and lock activities. 

We then moved on to discussing cannabis and the short term and long term effects on what this does to our body. 

A fantastic session Year 6 and thank you to DECCA too!

 

 

 

Remembrance Day

In our English lessons this week, we have been writing our own version of 'In Flanders Fields' to remember the brave soldiers who lost their lives during the war. 

We worked so hard on them all week and published them onto tracing paper in front of a picture of a poppy field. 

They look absolutely amazing! Such a wonderful way to remember our brave soldiers; well done Year 6!

Parliament Week

During the week commencing 3rd November, we discussed all about Parliament and the Government. We discussed James Morris and his role within Parliament and different topics that he could take to the House of Commons to discuss with other MPs from different areas.
