Autumn 1, Week 6
This week we have developed our rugby skills to begin to play mini games. We practised our passing without moving when we had the ball as well as intercepting the ball between our opponents. By developing these skills we scored many tries.
We also had a fantastic time at the Science Museum learning all about space. Take a look at our photos to see how much we enjoyed our day.

We thought this was unfair so we wrote persuasive letter to the principal of the college to persuade him to end segregation and encourage others to do the same.
