Kingfisher's big debate!

This week we are learning about forming a balanced argument. We started by gathering ideas for and against a topic (whether children should be online for 2 hours a day) and then debated the topic in our class. The focus was on speaking and listening- engaging our audience and responding to other people's ideas. It was great fun!

Josef Tucker came to read us some stories!

RE- Mrs Begum came to talk to Year 5 about being a Muslim. It was really informative!

Our amazing day at Frogmary Green Farm! We learnt all about science and geography, what a lovely experience!
