Welcome to the Year 6 class page!
Friday 15th November
Today in RE, children in Year 6 played a game called 'On the Move' as part of our 'Justice' topic. In the game, each child was in role as a family member. They were told that they were about to become refugees as their home country was too dangerous. The children were given a number of tasks linked to possessions that they could take and problems that they would meet along the way. At the end of their perilous journey, the children thought about how they would want people to treat them: with kindness and understanding.
