Year 6 enjoyed an online careers talk by Lorna Bennett, a renewable energy engineer at ORE Catapult, the UK's leading technology innovation and research centre for offshore renewable energy. She explained her career journey and the process of designing and maintaining wind turbines. The children asked thought-provoking questions. We are grateful that she is, "working towards building a better world by creating new things to make old things better". Thanks to Positive Footprints for organising the event.
Year 6 attended an online career conversation about climate change with Jamie Brogan from Edinburgh Climate Change Institute and Raising Aspirations. We discussed how we all have an impact and we have pledged to play our part in living simpler and being green.
We pledge to reduce waste and to use our voices to influence others.
We have learnt that little things make a difference - our futures, our lives.

Congratulations to Erin and James for passing their recent LAMDA drama examination. Both students scored high into the nineties and were awarded ‘distinctions’! James and Erin have been working with Limelight Speech and Drama Academy in school towards this qualification. They both experienced many delays and setbacks due to Covid restrictions. Nevertheless, they persevered and should be congratulated on their resilience and effort. Well done to you both!
Like many other primary schools, today Y6 have been given some homework for the weekend to remind them there is more to life and more to school than SATs.
This poem is by an unknown poet and was first seen online in 2019.
This week, Y6 have welcomed James Riley, a former probation officer into school for five daily workshops. He runs the Get Away 'n' Get Safe Prevention Programme with the aim to educate, inspire and empower young people to take control of their future by rejecting the gang lifestyle.
James inspired Y6 with empowering messages to make good choices & examples of the consequences of gang membership.
His key messages included 'be brave and confident to make the right choice', 'retaliation never solved a problem' and 'be forgiving'.
James from Y6 was excited to receive a signed Trent Alexander Arnold Liverpool FC shirt in recognition of his contributions throughout the week.
Home learning work was set for Year 6 on Microsoft Teams during lockdowns and isolations. Please watch this video if you need a reminder about how to use it.
