Brunswick Primary School

Enjoy, Exceed, Excel

A massive thank you to these children for living our legacy and being such great role models this week!

Welcome to the Year 6 website! We have kicked off the year by discussing what an honour it is to be at the top of the school and having so many young people looking up to us. This led us on to brainstorming how to enhance our 'legacy' that we will leave behind, both as an individual and as a year group team. This is based on a book I have read (and keep returning to) called 'Legacy' about the All Blacks rugby team in New Zealand.

We are having a big push to make sure that we represent ourselves the best we can by: living the values; taking pride in our uniform; grasping all opportunities that come our way; and being the best that we can be. We are even 'sweeping the sheds' just like the All Blacks do at the end of every game "because no one should clean up after an All Black". Do feel free to continue this at home!!

The video below will give you a little more insight into this Legacy that we are aiming to achieve.

Year 6 E Safety

Knowing about E Safety is so important for Year 6 children that we've added this section about what's good and bad about the internet and ways you can get yourself out of bad situations. The website we've chosen even has fun games you can play while learning E Safety. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.
