Week beginning: 05.09.2022
What a fantastic start it has been for our new year 6 family. We have dropped them in at the deep end with the opportunity of writing and delivering their speeches to be on this academic year’s Pupil Leadership Team. The jobs within the PLT come with a lot of responsibility and they have had to really think hard about what personal attributes make them the suitable candidate for the roles. On Friday afternoon, year 6 pupils started delivering their speeches to the whole of the year group. We are really proud of all of their efforts with their PLT speech this week.
Year 6 also put on their historian caps and dug out their excavating shovels and brushes as they immerse into the ancient world of the Shang Dynasty. They learnt about the social hierarchy within this civilisation and what occupations people would have had within the different tiers of society. They also researched their different customs and beliefs. All of this culminated in them producing fantastic double page spreads in their learning journals to showcase their understanding and research.
Year 6 have settled in really well and are beginning to embrace their role of being role models to the rest of the school.
