In English, Year 6 have been looking at newspaper reports and how they are structured. The children were given, in their pairs, pieces of a newspaper report that had been cut up. Their task was to then work together to figure out where each piece belonged and justify their choices for placing them.
In Year 6, we have been discussing the term respect and what it means. We have also been looking at self-respect and how that links directly to our own happiness. The children started off discussing in pairs what respect means, before moving on to discussing the term self-respect. The children were then given two different coloured post-it notes and two different tasks. On the one, they had to write down or draw something they think they are good at, and on the other, they had to say something nice about their partner. We then spoke about how this made them feel and how when were are feeling negative we can get rid of those thoughts in various different ways.
In Year 6 we have been discussing the internet and what it actually is. We have been talking about how there are lots of different services and parts to the internet, it is not just one thing.
The children then read more information on a designated website before creating their very own poster to explain the internet to others.
