We wore odd socks and bought gingerbread men in support of National Down’s syndrome Day
Mrs Price-Uden gave us a comprehension test but when we looked at it we panicked because it was in German. It was too hard to complete as we couldn't read it. We discussed what it's like for someone who has difficulties with learning and how it feels when we are faced with something we can't do.
Mrs Marchant came to speak to us from Amnesty International. She talked about Malala and how Malala didn’t have rights. Malala was very brave.
We have been learning about what Individual liberty means. We learned about the United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child. We discussed which ones were important to us.
We discussed about what ‘discrimination’ means and how Martin Luther King worked hard to end race discrimination.
We had a debate in class about what it means to 'run like a girl'. We watched a video that challenged the gender stereotypes and we talked about how gender stereotyping can be damaging.
We had a cake sale to help raise money for CAFOD. It is for Catholic Aid For Overseas Development. It's important that we help those less fortunate than ourselves
We learned about the significance of the poppy and reflected on what the 2018 centenary of Armistice Day means. We used art to create poppies and listened to the poem In Flanders Fields.
We learned about St David, the patron saint of Wales. We listened to the Welsh national anthem, ate welsh cakes and learned some Welsh.
These year six boys were praised for their respectful behaviour and good manners- they say good morning and hold doors open for other people, making extra effort to allow adults to pass by.
We made use of the British Value of democracy by holding a school council hustings. Year Sixes presented speeches explaining why they would be effective school council representatives and the rest of the children cast votes.
