The power of the media!

The children this week have been thinking about the power of the media in a range of different ways.

We have been unpicking aspects of recent speeches given by Joe Biden and how his message of peace and unity relates to the ideals of our Creation Unit in RE – this has been an interesting exercise and the children enjoyed applying their Creation knowledge to current, real-world issues. On top of this, Year 6 have written a persuasive letter to the BBC requesting that more documentaries and television programmes reveal wolves in a more positive light. Again, this has been an enriching process where the children have acquired new subject-specific knowledge about wolves. Their composition and output has really ramped up!

Children have continued to develop their sending and receiving skills in netball, practising ‘the pivot’ to orientate their position better before passing. The girls certainly ‘out pivoted’ the boys this week!


  • There are still a couple of weeks until the reading passports are due in. Get stuck into it!
  • It has been great to see what children have been reading at home through their on-going book reviews – keep aiming to complete a review every two weeks.
  • Ideally, children should be making their way through their second ‘must read book’ of the year (out of six books)
  • If you have yet to book your virtual parents evening slot, remember to!


Have a good weekend,

The Year 6 Team
