We were visited today by 3 Northampton magistrates. They told us about their role and how the justice system works. We even got to experience a mock trial about cyber bullying. What did you learn from the whole experience?
So then year six, how was the trip to the set of Emmerdale?
Here is a link to a spelling game. It has two levels – easy and hard. Have a go. Leave feedback about what you thought of it and how you got on.
There will be no session at the Study centre on Wednesday 21st October. Children will need picking up as usual on Wednesday at 3:15. It will instead be held on Friday 23rd October from 9:30 until 11:30. Children should come to school as usual on this day. They will be back in time for lunch.
Great session at the Study Centre tonight! All kinds of circus skills on display. Tremendous patience, perseverance and resilience shown. Great entertainment too!
Shame about the 90 minute journey home! You were amazing on the bus year 6 despite the wait! Thank you all and thanks parents/careers for your understanding!
Here you go Year 5 and 6.
Your task is to give a talk of between 1 and 2 minutes on a subject of your choice. You can talk about anything at all—a hobby, a place, a person—absolutely anything! It is probably best to choose a subject that you feel passionate about.
You will need to research your subject, prepare your talk and practise delivering it. You will be allowed to bring in one prop to help you in presenting your talk. You will not be allowed to read your talk directly but will be able to bring in notes to help remind you of key points. You will also not be able to use programs such as Powerpoint. We just want you to talk about something that really engages you.
Over the next week we will be watching a number of people give talks of their own and will be developing a list of qualities that a speaker needs to be successful. This will help you to deliver your talk at the end.
You have until the start of Autumn 2 in November to prepare this. We will be presenting them to a selected audience anytime from the week beginning 2nd November onwards.
If you need any help then just ask. Feel free to pose questions on the class blog where this homework is also posted.
Good luck. Show us how good you are!
