An introduction to Parliament15-06-2017 | 13:52:11 | Comments Off on An introduction to Parliament

Should we have nuclear weapons?15-06-2017 | 13:47:59 | Comments Off on Should we have nuclear weapons?

Today we have had a parliamentary-style debate about whether or not we should have nuclear weapons.

This followed a discussion we had last week during our British Values Curriculum Days: while we were sharing our General Election manifestos, it was clear that a number of children felt very strongly about having nuclear weapons as a deterrent.

Therefore, we decided to explore democracy, parliament (e.g. its history, how it is made up, how debates are structured and how voting works) and the importance of voting. Part of this work also included watching extracts of debates and votes in parliament as well as investigating the rules around them.

This all built towards a ‘full on’ debate this morning followed by a vote. The quality of the debating was absolutely superb and everybody was able to make a valuable contribution. Well done 6KH!

PE training with Bee Active08-06-2017 | 14:38:02 | Comments Off on PE training with Bee Active

We joined forces with the Bee Active team for some PE training today! Ben did sessions for each key stage, focussing on how we can get our children using their heart, hands and head in sport. All of the staff got stuck in, sharing ideas and having a go at some new activities. It turns out we are quite a competitive bunch!
Good luck to the Bee Active team in the Potters Arf marathon this Sunday! Look out for the bee if you are out supporting!
