What an amazing day for year 6 today! A visit to the Bridgewater Hall to take part on Manchester's Big Sing. The children had an amazing time singing along to all of the songs. We were all blown away when we saw Miss Kent at the front as one of the lead singers!! She was awesome and she gave us a special shout-out. Our response was so loud she could hear us all the way from the back.

This week we launched our new topic about life during The Second World War. We started with a dance, where the children all had to learn an old fashioned dance called the 'Lindy Hop'. They did very well and had a chance to practise. As you can see from the photographs below, they all had a great time.

Year 6 took part in a peaceful protest to raise awareness of Global Warming and Climate Change. They made amazing banners to use when marching around the school grounds. They attracted a lot of attention because they made the decision to hold their protest at the same time as the school cake sale. This had a big impact as there were a lot of people around. We are so proud of the children in both year 6 classes for showing so much passion and dedication to 'making a change' for the better.
