Y6 Parliament Workshop

Parliament Came to Visit!

Despite the Summer term being exceedingly busy, we were fortunate to have a visit from Rachael Dodgson, from the Parliament Education Service. A whole school assembly explained all about the job of our MPs, the role of the Prime Minister and the various sections within the Houses of Parliament. The Upper School were then able to participate in two workshops which explored the process of ‘Bill to Law’ and the systems in place for ‘Elections and Voting.’ The children were able to create and suggest new laws of their own and make their proposals to the class. They also split themselves into their constituencies to elect representatives. Every vote and decision was made very democratically. Who knows, there may even be a budding MP or Prime Minister amongst them!

Cooking at UVHS

During the Summer term, UVHS were kind enough to allow our Year 6 children to use their kitchen in order fulfil our Design & Technology curriculum. Miss Anderton's class visited on Monday 13th June and Mrs Brown led the session. They prepared and cooked a delicious, and yet healthy, stir-fry and learnt lots of new skills along the way. All the children behaved impeccably and even enjoyed the washing up at the end!

I wonder if they are as eager to wash up at home?!

Weekend Walk To Levers Water

Children enjoyed a weekend walk to Levers Water this month. The trip was organised by Mr Cross and enjoyed by all the children who took part and several parents too. It was a bright, crisp day and an excellent way to explore the Lake District in the company of friends and family.
If you are interested in coming on the next weekend walk then then listen out in assembly as they usually happen once every half term.

The more the merrier!
