Our Year 6 girls football team entered their first tournament on Monday 23rd April. It was organised to coincide with women’s football week and the girls got the chance to play on the fantastic facilities at St Bede’s.
Miss Wheeler and Mr Warren were very proud of the team, this was their first tournament and they were up against much more experienced teams. They didn’t win but they did exhibit a fantastic attitude, some excellent skills and great examples of team work. Their defence was excellent and they have started competing in a really positive manner.
On Friday, volunteers from many different professions came to talk to our Year 5 and Year 6 children about their careers.
The children really enjoyed having the opportunity to talk to people from over 30 different professions about future careers including; architecture, graphic design, TV production, engineering, medicine, writing, acting, photography and many more. Many of the children were unaware that there were so many interesting jobs they could do when they were older. They loved having the opportunity to talk to the adults and find out more.
The school would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to support us and share their experiences with the children.
After reading LINE OF FIRE, the illustrated diary of an unknown soldier from World War 1, our year 6 Reading Gladiators decided to try to replicate the illustrations – with powerful results!
We are delighted to announce that their artwork made them joint winners, with two other schools, for the Just Imagine mini-challenge for December! This is particularly noteworthy as they were pitted against year 6 children in schools all over the whole country. Their prize was an interesting selection of graphic novels that our Reading Gladiators will now review for their peers. Meanwhile, a display of their evocative artwork is on our library wall – so don’t forget to visit with your children to celebrate their achievement!
