Junior Citizens Trip
Y6 had a fantastic trip to Rewley Road Fire Station in Oxford to take part in Junior Citizens. During our two hour visit we experienced eight different safety scenarios and everyone was given the opportunity to practice making a 999 telephone call .The two hours flew by and we had lots to talk about on our journey back to school.
Without giving away too much about the different scenarios here are some comments about the morning:
“I found the morning very interesting and very realistic.” – Darcey
“I think that the Junior Citizens trip was really fun and I learnt a lot about safety; they covered everything. I definitely recommend the trip.”- Luke
“I enjoyed the Junior Citizens trip because we were learning but it was fun .”- Jess
Y6 have had a very busy and varied start to the term. We have begun our English lessons by reading the fantastic ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar and have already shown that we have a class of children who are very skilful in using their inference and deduction skills ; we have had some amazing discussions and can’t wait to explore this exciting text together.
While some of us have been braving the elements to take part in Level 1 and 2 Bikeability the rest of us have been hard at work considering what making a commitment means and how difficult this can be. We have delved into Ancient Greece to research what life was like in the city states of Athens and Sparta and been horrified to discover that boys began their military training at just seven years of age. Even cycling through the torrential rain doesn’t seem quite as awful in comparison !
