Monday 1st June 2020 – Badge competition and Word of the Week

Hello Year 6,

We hope you managed to enjoy the sunshine and that you have had a welcomed rest over the half term holiday.

Badge competition

Miss Rogers and I have loved seeing your fantastic badge competition entries so far. They have really brightened my inbox! The deadline for entries is this week, so please send them in as soon as possible. They will then be passed on to Mr Hacker, our Principal, who will be judging the competition. Good luck to all of you, we don’t envy Mr Hacker as you are all winners in our eyes!

Word of the Week

For your transition activity today, we would like you to check out our Word of the WeekEvery Monday morning, we introduce a new Word of the Week to our students. The Word of the Week is introduced through a form activity, in the pupil bulletin and is put on our social media channels too. We ask our students to use the Word of the Week in their work and in their conversations. Introducing new words each week, helps our students to develop and expand their vocabulary which gives them more words to express their ideas and understand the world around them.

We would like you to have a go at using our Word of the Week in your schoolwork this week. When you have used it, we would like you to highlight it in your work, take a picture, and send it to Some of the best examples will be added to the Co-op Academy Walkden social media pages.

Finally, check back on the portal this Thursday for an introductory video from our Senior Leadership Team. They can’t wait to meet you soon!

Take care, stay safe, and stay well.

Miss Wallwork
