Learning Together & Making a Difference


Sticky Questions

Each week, Year 6 children will receive a new question, which we will collectively review in class on the following Friday. These questions are designed for their age group and are meant to stimulate discussions. Taking a moment to engage with these questions at home is greatly beneficial; it enhances classroom discussions and offers an excellent opportunity for an activity, emphasising that there are no incorrect answers.
