Gabriel’s ‘Night before Christmas rap’

Recently in our poetry work, we have been creating of a modern version of the festive poem ‘Twas the night before Christmas’.  The children analysed the features, pattern and language in the poem and then set about creating their own modern version based on their own experiences of Christmas day.  Following this, Mr Lane, Charlie and Gabriel rapped some of the poems and you can see the video of Gabriel’s amazing performance below.

 

Road Safety in Year 6

Week beginning Monday 26th November was ‘Road Safety’ week at Peter’s.   However, Year 6 have been practising their road awareness skills each week on their walk to our local swimming baths.   We are becoming much more aware of the dangers and how to remain safe when walking in our busy town.   The journey to and from the pool is becoming much more efficient and therefore journey time is reduced due to our increased awareness of the roads and safely crossing.    We are almost fully prepared for our transition to secondary school – we just need to keep on practising.
