British Values – MP visits Year 6

This morning, Year 6 were visited by Steve McCabe Labour MP for the Selly Oak constituency. As part of British Values Week, the year 6 topic is “The election process” and Eagles found this opportunity invaluable to their topic. Mr McCabe introduced himself and told the class a little bit about what his role was as an MP. He said that he spent most of his time in the Houses of Commons and working in the community; listening to people and helping with any issues that they have.

Then it was time for a Q&A session with the class. Year 6 asked some excellent questions which Mr Mccabe said were tough!

Some of these questions and Mr McCabe’s answers are as follows:

Mr Mccabe was asked how many votes he received at the last election and the Eagles worked the exact number out (with Mrs Sabirs help!) from some information Mr Mccabe gave.


The morning was very enriching and Mrs Croft, Mrs Sabir, Mr Koeri and all the Eagles would like to thank Mr Mccabe for coming to visit us today and answering all of our questions!

WE Day is a celebration of youth making a difference in their local and global communities. Bells Farm are part of the WE Schools program – it nurtures compassion in young people and gives them the tools to create transformative social change.

Children quotes
Morgan – The music was epic!

World Book Day

Bells Farm held World Book Day celebrations today, and as part of that, we started the day with a special assembly where all years preformed a poem or short story.

Year 6 had planned to perform the book they have just studied entitled ‘The Highwayman,’ but as you can see from the video below Faith didn’t think it was a good idea!

Just before home time, Mrs Butterworth came to our class to announce that Megan was best dressed in Key stage two as Gangsta Granny and won a special prize! Congratulations!

This morning, Year 4 and Year 6 brought in their favourite book into school. Some members of Year 6 went to the Year 4 classroom and some members of Year 4 came to the Year 6 classroom with Miss Mcclelland. Members of year 4 sat with a child from Year 6 and they described why they liked their book, read extracts to each other, talked about their favourite parts and tried to convince their partner why their book was the best. Children worked very well with each other and enjoyed the opportunity to share their thoughts.

At the end of the session, some children volunteered to stand in front of the class and tell everyone why they like their chosen book.


World Book Week


To start World Book Week, teachers went to other classes and read their favourite book. Year 6 were lucky to have Miss Mcclelland read a very passionate version of her book “Rumble in the jungle.” Afterwards, many members of Year 6 volunteered to read the part of one of the animals from the book.


A big thanks to Miss Mcclelland and all of our readers!
