In maths we have been using manipulative to help us with our algebra knowledge. 
We have reminded ourselves how to stay safe online. We have then designed our own posters with our top five tips. 
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. The first term has been full of achievements and fun. We have asked the children what they feel about year six so far - their hopes, dreams and achievements. Here are a few of their suggestions.

Body Image and the Media:

On Tuesday 27th November, we pulled in a lesson on body image and the media. We felt it important to address this and the issues caused by images our pupils see on a daily basis, on the news, in magazines and on social media platforms.

 

We looked at several before and after photos after celebrities' images had been heavily edited. We discussed why this type of software is used and the effects it has on people of all ages who see these photoshopped images, especially when they are passed off as real life! Below is an example of Miss Robinson's edited picture:
