Welcome to Year 6!
Teacher: Mrs Collis
Each year, we create a Social Story for our individual year groups. The aim of the Social Story is to help children become accustomed to their change in environment as they progress upwards through the school. It outlines how their classroom will look, who their teachers are, and how the school day may look. Our Year 6 social story can be found here:
As part of our whole school focus on Social Justice this week, Year 6 have been discussing what every child needs to be happy, safe and successful. As a class, we discussed children’s rights and linked this to the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (Unicef UK). After lots of debating and passionate discussion from the class, they created their own poster to demonstrate which right they believed to be one of the most important.
Malala's Magic Pencil
As a school, we have been looking at Malala’s Magic Pencil by Malala Yousafzai which is based on a true story of one girl’s wish for a better world. The children used this text as part of their philosophy lesson and then thought about what they would do if they had a magic pencil and could change the world.
