The Power of Reading – ConnectED

Today Year 6 joined the ConnectED – Power of Reading session. We heard from two business employees who both work in Canary Wharf; one as a lawyer and one in property assets.

They discussed the power of reading in their jobs and where they are required to use reading in their professional life. Hopefully this inspired some of our Year 6s to think that they could work in jobs like this!

National Poetry Day – 6H

We had a great afternoon in Year 6 performing the classic poem ‘Dog in the Playground’ by Alan Alhberg.

We took advice from the legend Michael Rosen:

Here are a couple of our performances we knocked up this afternoon:

Wah Yuan the tearaway dog causes trouble in 6KH

We also enjoyed watching this video from Sheen Mount Primary School performing another of Alan’s poems! I reckon they spent a lot of time practising this one!
