Year 6 Intra-school House basketball tournament
Year 6 have been doing basketball this term, and to finish this unit, they took part in an intra-school house competition. The games were played with a good, competitive spirit and there was some fantastic basketball on view with fast-paced, end-to-end action throughout. Congratulations to Tavy, who came out the winners!
Henry VIII / Anne Boleyn diary writing
During our Tudor-themed learning this term, Year 6 have been writing emotive diary entries from the point of view of either Henry VIII or Anne Boleyn, detailing the final days and hours before her execution in 1536. Below is an example of each, written by Daniel D and Chris T in Willow.
SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD
On Tuesday 10th October 2017, Year 6’s from Woodford went to a ‘Show Racism the red card’ event at the grounds of Plymouth Argyle; this was all about how hate crime and racism can affect peoples lives. During this outstanding experience - which we all enjoyed – we got to: have a tour around the stadium (including the holding cells where the misbehaving spectators go), learn about how prejudging people is wrong and the most exciting part was when we got to interview a panel of Argyle players. The best questions about racism and hate crime were awarded with signed footballs and T-shirts – afterwards, we all got autographs from the players. We thoroughly enjoyed this event and learnt a lot!
