Y6 Anti-smoking Campaign:
Year 6 have been busy writing posters and letters to persuade people of Ilkeston to stop smoking. We are so proud of their achievements and hoping that their hard work helps at least one person to quit. Their work is currently displayed in Ilkeston Hospital.
Sats Parent Meeting
We are now in Spring 2 and SATS are getting closer. The children are working hard and as a result are showing great progress. Thank you to all the adults that were able to make our meeting this week. For those who weren’t able, we have added the short video explanation and the letter that was given out on the parent tab, then KS2 SATS page.
Any further questions-please come and talk to the Y6 staff.
Thanks for your continued support!
Year 6 Team 😊
Body Image and the Media:
On Tuesday 27th November, we pulled in a lesson on body image and the media after we watched a Newsround clip the week before where this was the key focus. 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:
Hope, an anti bullying drama workshop for Y6, came to our school on Tuesday 20th November.
