In addition to our weekly sessions, the Year 6 Eco Peer Educators are going to be undertaking gardening projects around our school grounds. We will be focussing on growing vegetables (that we will then use to make our own food), as well as designing floral beds to support bees and other wildlife in their natural ecosystems.
The year 6 team wish you all a happy new year and hope that you had an enjoyable festive break. During the first term the whole year 6 team have been hugely impressed with how the pupils have applied themselves to their learning and have assisted each other throughout.
During the forthcoming half term we will be reading/writing diaries (based on the film/book - Wonder) and biographies (about a social justice leader). In mathematics we will be studying decimals, percentages and measure. Science we will be studying electricity. In art we will be producing social justice posters. In geography we will be studying Mexico and Brazil, looking at their contrasting features.
We look forward to working with you and your child through 2019.
The first half term seems to have flown by and year 6 pupils have applied themselves excellently throughout. This half term we are looking at the power of the media. Our first piece of reading and writing is looking at balanced arguments on screen time, after which we will be looking at newspaper reports to do with false advertising.
Theme: Values and Perceptions (Can I understand the power of the media?)
EI Value: Understanding (Do I recognise the way I and others are feeling?)
It is always a sad time to say goodbye but these children have now reached the end of their incredible times at Manley Park Primary School. Here are some photos from their incredible leaving assembly.
As part of their training to get ready for their roles here at Manley Park, the Prefects and Playleaders were taken to Robinwood for a weekend residential to complete team-building activities. Photos from this weekend can be seen below. Everybody had a great time and came together to work as a team in their respective groups, supporting each other when somebody struggled with an activity.
