Year 6 Blog
This has been a jam packed term – just how we like it here in year 6.
Our Freedom topic has continued to interest and inspire as we have been considering the impacts of slavery in today’s society and how human rights aren’t always protected around the world. We have been building this information into our final speeches. After listening to and reading a range of famous speeches from great orators we have been learning how to write persuasive pieces using key skills such as emotive language, repetition and the power of three. We are so excited to present these to our audience of friends and parents on Thursday morning. We’re a little nervous too!
The last couple of weeks have been suitably festive. We were luckily enough to be given the opportunity to take part in a carol service at Clifton Cathedral – magical! We were visited by the music co-coordinator beforehand and taught a few Makaton signs to go alongside the well-loved lyrics, she was definitely impressed with how quickly we managed to learn them as well as to remember them. The service was very beautiful, there was even a real donkey.
To continue the festivities, we enjoyed watching the nativity performances by EYFS and KS1. To top it off we had a fantastic turnout for Christmas jumper day. This week we’ll be partying at our year 5 and 6 Christmas party and sharing a delicious Christmas dinner in our handmade party hats – phew!
