As a result, pupils at Cedars are confident, aspirational, articulate learners who are ready for the next stage of education.

Year 6 have been revising the days of the week and learning a song. They have been learning actions to go with the days of the week so that the words stick in their memory - lundi (on knees), mardi (clap hands), mercredi ( fold arms), jeudi (hands on shoulders), vendredi (hands over ears), samedi (finger on nose), dimanche (hands on head). They have been learning the i sound that goes at the end of the days of week. Do a big smile and say i! Interestingly, the French days of the week don't need a capital letter.
