This week has been another exciting one for Year 6! We have held our annual class assembly, sharing our ‘journey through Year 6’ with our parents, some of us have taken part in Bikeability training and even trained live with the Body Coach himself, Joe Wicks.
We began the week by discussing our own General Election results and what a hung parliament actually means – lots of us were surprised to realise how easy it is to invalidate your ballot paper when voting! On Monday, we worked with David Foster for Stepping Up Together, considering the law and how easy it is to commit a crime without realising. We looked at the story of Goldilocks and the three bears – it turns out that in the eyes of the law, Goldilocks is quite the criminal! It was great on Tuesday to share our favourite moments of the year: from judo and fencing taster sessions, to our Beamish trip and the exciting events still to come for this half term.
Wednesday afternoon, we all took part in a live exercise class with Joe Wicks, the body coach and some of us even got to meet some staff from our new secondary schools! On Thursday we begun our Geography work exploring the magnificent country of Mexico. We’re going to look at its location, human and physical features as well as Mexican festivals and why they are special.
