Year 6 – A Fantastic Start.

Our lovely year 6 classes have settled in beautifully to Badger and Woodpecker class. Not only do they look the part in their super smart shirts and ties but their behaviour and attitude is impeccable to match.

This term, as a whole school, we have been looking closely at the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child and we have been making links to these throughout our topic.

Our topic this term is Freedom. We have been thinking about what freedom means to us, what freedom looked like throughout the Roman and Anglo Saxon era and at inspiring people from the past and present that stand up for their right to freedom and for the rights of others. We have been inspired by the actions of many and have been carefully considering how our small actions can change the world for the better.

Outside of the classroom this term, we were lucky enough to visit the Create Centre in Hotwells and to learn about what it means to be safe and to stay safe in a range of situations such as checking we’ve been given the correct change in the local shop and knowing how and when to call the emergency services. We were perfectly behaved and the staff there took the opportunity to tell our teachers how wonderful we were.
