The General Election - June 2017

In KS2 we have been learning about ‘democracy’ as part of our Ancient Greek and PSHE work.
We have learnt all about how British democracy works, including how parliament functions. Year 5 & 6 have analysed the manifestos of all of the major political parties standing in June 2017.
They then campaigned for that party and participated in delivering persuasive speeches to years 3 & 4. On June 8th, we held our own KS2 election and all of the children voted for the party whose manifesto and speeches they felt were most effective.
The votes were counted and verified, and we can announce that the Labour Party were elected at Evington Valley with 74% of the vote, followed by the Green Party in second place with 20% of the vote.

It was a nice way to raise the awareness of voting; it gave me the chance to voteand it taught me why it is so important. Overall it was very enjoyable.

Maryam (Year 6 Pupil)

It was very knowledgable and gave everyone information on politics and gave views on each party. It taught us how to vote and I really enjoyed it.

Fatima (Year 6 Pupil)

This activity taught us about politics and told us each parties views and it was fun presentig to Year 3 & 4.

Meet the Creatures - June 2017

I enjoyed touching the minibeasts, it felt a bit ticklish. My favourite minibeast was the millepied beacuse it felt like a giant toothbrush on my hand.
Rawdha (Year 2 Pupil)

I enjoyed the snake when it was on my neck. I learnt that snakes are deaf. I enjoyed the spider even though I learnt the spider web comes out from their mouth.
Ifshan (Year 2 Pupil)

I learnt about spiders and they look scary!Abdul-Karim (Year 2 Pupil)

I enjoyed Meet a Creature because I haven't seen any of these minibeasts before in my life. My favourite minibeast was the tarantula because it was soft.
Qasim (Year 2 Pupil)

I have enjoyed learning about all the fascinating facts because they were very interesting. My favourite fact was when a centipede grows it will have a thousand legs.

Year 5 & 6 Trip to Goals - May 2017

I enjoyed playing football matches at Goals. It was really fun even though it rained.

Muneebah (Year 6 Pupil)

I enjoyed the teamwork that everyone put in because we all passed the ball to one another and didn't keep it to ourselves. It was a great experience because even if we lost we kept a growth mindset.

Aaliah (Year 6 Pupil)

I enjoyed going to goals because I liked competing against other teams andbecause football is a very joyful sport.

Safiyyah (Year 5 Pupil)

I enjoyed how everybody worked togther and how even when we lost we did not mind, we were happy and did not give up.

Yes you can project - March 2017

I really enjoyed this amazing privilege and this awesome experience. First we made a card expressing our dreams, my dream was to stop pollution and to help people who are suffering. I enjoyed this as it helped me to express my dream in arts and creativity. Also during this project we had the honour of singing ‘Yes you can’ to Prince Harry. My mind exploded when I got chosen to perform this inspirational song to royalty and I will cherish the moments in the Yes you can project.

Kulsum (Year 6 Pupil)

I loved going to the drama hall every Wednesday to attend the sessions and then going to the ceremony; getting called up on stage and recieving our certificates was amazing.

Rahima (Year 6 Pupil)

I enjoyed taking part in the Yes you can project because it made me feel I can achieve anything I want to and now I can make my dreams come true!

Unaisah (Year 5 Pupil)

I enjoyed this event because there was a lot of things to do such as singing, learning about Martin Luther Kingand making plaque cards. Another thing I enjoyed was going to Hamilton College and singing to Prince Harry
