Take a look at some of the great things we have been doing in Year 6 Class.
Poppy Appeal - November 2017
Year 6 have been collecting money for the Poppy Appeal. As well as selling poppies throughout the day, we have also made our own from felt - creating brooches and hair bobbles. Additionally, on Friday 10th November, we made the short trip to Lees War Memorial and placed our own wreaths as a mark of respect to the fallen soldiers.
Police Officer Visit - November 2017
Y6 were visitied by a local Police Officer and a PCSO to discuss hate crime as a link to our SMSC and British Values, particularly Mutual Respect and Tolerance. The children loved asking questions and were given plenty of advice about staying safe and how to avoid conflict.
