We created some pieces using tissue paper to create a background. We then added images of ourselves and words that summed up our lockdown experience. There was some great messages from each of the children’s work.
Year 6 Leavers’ Hoodies are now available to order. Please complete the form below with your parent/carer so that we know if you would/would not like to order one.
Last year hoodies were £20 and this year we have managed to secrure them for £14.75 each. They will have the school logo embroided on the front left hand side and “Leavers 21” on the back in white with the children’s names in the numbers.
Children can choose from red, blue, green, yellow or black.
Please complete the form and go to ParentPay to pay for your hoodie by 12 pm on Monday 16th March 2021, so we can order these and the children can start wearing them from the beginning of the Summer Term. If you have any issues with paying by this date please email email@example.com and let us know.
Following our drivers of activism and democracy, yesterday we had a virtual visit from the education team at UK Parliament.
The children looked at the different parts of the building and learnt about some of the history of the Houses of Parliament. Then we looked at how our democracy works in the UK as well as the different components of the Houses of Parliament and how a law is written.
We were able to participate using the chat and the children asked lots of great questions and made some excellent suggestions about campaigns that they would raise or the purpose of different laws.
Families do not need to take any action on offer day, as they have until 15 March to submit waiting list requests and 29 March to submit appeal requests.
If families are not happy with the school they have been offered they can ask to be added to the waiting list for any Leeds school (including schools they haven’t previously asked for) and can appeal against the refusal of a place at a preferenced school. Waiting list forms and appeal forms are available at www.leeds.gov.uk/offerday.
Can you please recommend to any family who are considering refusing their offer that they
· contact the allocated school before turning down the offer
· are aware that if they turn down a place, it will be allocated to another child and we cannot guarantee a place will become available at a closer school to home – they could be left without a Year 7 place.
· understand accepting an offer doesn’t impact the chances of being offered a place from the waiting list or increase the chances of success at an appeal hearing
· any family who refuses an offer must contact the offered school direct and will be asked to confirm where they will be educating their child in September
Application forms for any children who have not submitted an application for Year 7 can be found on our website www.leeds.gov.uk/offerday
Do you want to get better at French at home? Do you like someone silly who does funny voices? Do you like learning about French cultural events? Have you ever wanted to play Bingo or spot the missing item?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES then you should join Mr Innes for his French lessons on Youtube.
This afternoon Year 6 were delighted to have a Q&A session with the Leeds ‘born & bred’ author Tom Palmer.
Tom spoke to us about the inspiration for many of his historical novels as well as his undying love of football (and Leeds United!) Year 6 asked him many excellent questions about how he had become a writer, his favourite books and other football-related questions!
