Crucial Crew 2019
BL6 took part in a variety of workshops on Tuesday afternoon at the Crucial Crew event. The different organisations taught the children important messages about keeping safe in a fun and interactive way. Some of the organisations present included Network rail, Samaritans, Food Hygiene agency, Fire and rescue and St. John's ambulance.
Show racism the red card
BL6 have taken part in a workshop entitled 'Challenging stereotypes'. They are becoming ethically informed citizens as they discuss the terms immigration, refugee and asylum seeker. The children took part in a matching activity to match a picture and label. This enabled us to investigate the meaning behind these labels and highlighted the importance of not judging a book by its cover.
BL6 members of the Criw Cymraeg visited Holy Family school to meet with children from of our cluster school. They had the opportunity to practise asking and answering a range of Welsh questions. They also got to take part in a Welsh quiz.
Digital Literacy -Bl6
In Bl6 we are developing our understanding of Internet safety through a collaborative snowballing task. We watched a video all about the risks involved with sharing personal information,and we are sharing tips about how to stay safe. We also played an interactive game to help consolidate our learning.
Problem Solving in Bl6
In Bl6 we are taking part in a workshop with Dwr Cymru. We are using our critical thinking skills to solve a problem. We have to think interdependently to plan a network of pipes to ensure our water reaches every building in our village. Every cm of pipes costs £100.We have to use our numeracy skills to measure our network and calculate the cost. Our aim is to keep our costs as low as possible.
