Refugee Workshop

Claire, who works for the Red Cross, came to talk to us about refugees and how their lives have been affected by war. It was a fascinating but very sad insight into how children younger than ourselves are trying hard to survive when all they want to do is to return to their home country. It was difficult to put ourselves in their shoes and we thought about how we could make them feel more welcome. We'd like to thank Claire for delivering the workshop in a sensitive way and at our level.

Here are some of our thoughts:

"It was sad, especially thinking about the children and what they are going through"  Oscar O

"This workshop was necessary and very important, I'm glad we had it"   Dolly

"It taught us what refugees go through-it's so hard"   Alfie

"I found it upsetting-children having to run away because of war"   Kian

We learnt about the difficult process refugees have to go through and how young children feel about it"   William

All of the children came away with a deeper understanding of what it means to be a refugee and how young lives are unnecessarily affected by war. A very important lesson for us all.

parklife!!

After all that effort in the production (and how amazing were we?) we hit the park this afternoon. It was fantastic to let off some steam and chill out together as a whole class.


















What a team we are!!

Flame Festival 2018

Despite some dodgy weather at the start of the day, the sun eventually shone on us. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and even though were not the overall winners, we count ourselves as champions!!










Big thanks to Miss Ford (top photographer) and Mr Langdon for helping out too.

Pilgrim Visit

As part of our "A History of Brixham" project we were lucky enough to be able to board "Pilgrim", the oldest fishing boat in Brixham. It is still in use today but as an experience rather than a working boat. We were amazed to find out that one of the youngest crew members was only 9 years old when it was a fishing boat and quite glad that we are still able to go to school!!




We haven't quite learnt the ropes yet!

VICTORIOUS CRICKETERS

What a fantastic afternoon of cricket at Brixham College. We took 3 teams and all of them won all the games they played. The other teams couldn't believe we hadn't had any coaching!!! Well done Year 6 😊


I am super proud of you all!!!!

Making volcanoes!!

A very messy but enjoyable afternoon, we have started construction of what will be working volcanoes (with some help from coca cola and mentoes!). The first stage was making the base, it was a mass of newspaper and pva glue in our classroom.






Keep your eyes peeled for more mess and photos!
