NEWS AND VIEWS
Each Tuesday, children meet in their 'house' groups - Jupiter, Mars, Neptune and Saturn. Year 6 house captains lead a themed discussion, which maybe about current global, national, local or school based issues. A circle game opens each session, after which national and international news items are discussed. A theme is then introduced and children share views and opinions - giving every child an opportunity to contribute their thoughts and ideas every week. A reflection closes the session.

Where the discussion has been related to this,actions to be taken in response to any points raised by the children are shared and displayed on the 'News and Views' board in the school hall.
