Year 5/6 Walk for Remembrance 

Yesterday, children from years 5 and 6 walked to Heath Park memorial to pay their respects for Remembrance Day. While here, we discussed the importance of paying our respects to soldiers who have fought or are still fighting in all wars. Some children read out some wonderful poems that they had written. We then held a minutes silence. 

After this, we visited Holy Trinity church and looked at the many war graves that can be found within the churchyard. The children asked some very sensible questions as they paid their respects to the fallen soldiers. 

Well done to all of the children and thanks to all the staff that helped.

Rocksteady

This morning we had a visit from Rocksteady who showed us how much fun it was to be part of a band and how it can help us grow in confidence! Some of us had the opportunity to make a band and play a song together! We also found out that Mr Taylor is a whizz on the guitar and Mrs Bayliss had a go on the drum kit!

Year 6 Conscience Alley

In year 6 this week we have been thinking out dilemmas and what we would do in certain situations! In our book, Friend or Foe, the boys have a decision to make – should they help two injured German soldiers or not? We used a conscience alley to share our opinions and then we had to weigh up the pros and cons and make a decision. What would you do?

Describing characters

This week, year 6 have been working on improving their descriptions. They sat back to back to describe a character whilst the other person drew what they were describing! We soon realised that, to be able to guess who the character was, we needed to use expanded noun phrases!
