Year 6 were engaged, respectful and thoughtful throughout the entire day.
ICT Workshop - Social Media & Cyber Bullying
Year 6 enjoyed a very important and serious workshop that dealt with issues regarding the use of social media and online bullying.

Our Class Wish is:
“Aspire not to have more, but to BE more”
We talked in Year 6 about all the amazing things we have in our lives and how lucky we are compared to many people in the UK and round the world.
One of the children reminded us that there are children in the world (and in the UK) that wake up each day to a very difficult life with little in the way of food, clothing, comfort or indeed - education.
We all agreed that we should be grateful for the many ways we have been blessed in our lives and generous in the way we share our possessions, our lives and our time…

Objectives that are in pink are a Y5/Y6 statutory requirement and individual words highlighted pink are from the Y5/Y6 statutory spelling list. The additional sets either: revise previously visited spelling rules from lower year groups; practise a spelling rule linked to a Y5/Y6 statutory spelling word or relate to a word, sentence or punctuation objective from the English Appendix 2 of the NC 2014.
