Next term some classes will be adopting a variety of magnificent animals. With this in mind, the writing competition asks an important question. Why should we protect these animals? Are animals as important as us and what should we be doing to prevent their extinction? To win the completion you can either:
Write similes or metaphors using the two videos to compare and contrast ourselves and our lives with those of animals.
Write an argument or debate style sentences arguing for or against the protection of these endangered species.

Here are some photos from Year 6′s recent residential trip to Whitby. Everyone had a wonderful time and judging by the incredible writing on the 6S literacy page have come back thoroughly inspired!

Morning is a great time in the Nurture Room. There’s breakfast, juice and of course …songs. The children in nurture have shown how they can join in through song and learn words whilst having a lot of fun.
