Spellings will be given out on a Tuesday and tested the following Tuesday. The children will be expected to complete additional fun homework projects every 2 weeks.

British Values Week - Democracy 

As part of British Values week, Class 2 have been learning about democracy and how in Britain we have equal rights and the right to choose how we are treated. We had a very interesting class debate & vote about whether games (like Minecraft) should be banned, as some people believe they are not educational. The children had some very strong opinions on this. Here we are in action!
