We have started our Ballet topic under our Dance theme in PE. The children have enjoyed learning the basic fundamentals of Ballet such as mantaining positions with balance and core strength. The class has learnt a short dance with the basic 5 poses and will continue to progress in the coming weeks.
We have been looking at the word 'isn't' relative to coloured shapes. The children's task was to look at birthday candles and select the one that 'isn't' blue etc. They then had to stick the right candles on the birthday cake.
We were very lucky to have a representative from the British Parliament visiting Year 6. He spoke to the children about how our government runs and how elections and democracy works. With digital voting handsets, the class voted on what topic to debate and selected 'Should school be closed on Fridays'. After the debate, overlooked by our own very strict Speaker of the House, the class voted that school should remain open on Fridays.
