Autumn Term

What makes a good learner? Year 6 have been exploring the question for their Learning Algorithm. They discussed, compared and sorted statements that belonged to ‘Fixed Mindset’, or ‘Growth Mindset’. Then, they undertook a range of practical activities and challenges that promoted the benefits and importance of teamwork!

During a rather damp morning, Year 6 have been working with Sports UK to practise their skills for the Ultimate Frisbee Festival. They practised the different throws and catches, before reinforcing the rules and applying their skills in match situations!


Congratulations to our Year 6 Frisbee team who won the Sports UK Ultimate Frisbee Tournament!
