Maple Cross 2017 Student Council Elections

On Friday afternoon, Year 6 children presented their speeches with great confidence and enthusiasm to the younger years in order to persuade them to vote so they could become a part of the school council.

It was an extremely close election this year, with only a few votes in it. A big well done to all of Year 6 for their well-written speeches and for lots of you, taking a risk and presenting the speech to the whole school.

Year 6 – Trip to Harry Potter Studios

Year 6 had a delightful day yesterday exploring the Harry Potter studios after spending time this year reading the book and watching the film. It was great to see the children noticing the amount of work that had gone into the film and how things were not what they seemed. The children learnt the use of green screen and were amazed at the drawings and planning into the sets.

Year 6 would like to say a huge thank you to Ms Montgomery for taking them to Harry Potter Studios yesterday as a class trip.

Year 6 – Magistrates Visit

We would like to say a big thank you to the magistrates from Watford and St Albans who came in to school yesterday to share their roles with the Year 6 children. They impartedĀ lots of information and were given some training which was followed by role play where the children were given a case to decide the consequence. Year 6 showed great maturity and the questions asked were thought provoking and opened lots of discussion.

Year 6, what are your thoughts on having the visitors in school?
