Letters in Literacy
Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed the start to their topic of Letters in Literacy. To begin, they were given a secret mission to break codes and solve puzzles using a range of skills and abilities; we had many excellent code breakers in our class. They were then given the opportunity to write a letter to Secret Agent HQ to request a position as a secret agent using persuasive language. The children will continue to draft their letter throughout the coming weeks; hopefully we will have many successful applicants!
In Year 6 we have been learning about our class saint: St Bernadette. We have looked at her life story and the examples she set to others. We also looked at how the Catholic virtues (Eloquent & Truthful) were present in her life and in her story. St Bernadette stated the truth consistently about seeing visions of Our Lady Mary in Lourdes whilst no one else believed her. We discussed how important it is to always tell the truth, regardless of pressure from our peers.
