Autumn 2

In class, we are learning about: 

R.E.: we are starting our Advent topic.  Advent is a time of joyful expectation of Christmas, when the Word becomes a human person - Jesus.  The big question for this topic is: Should we have expectations in life?

Topic: World War II: following our WWII-themed visit to Beaumanor Hall, we will be reflecting on life working at a listening station and also at Bletchley Park where messages were decrypted.  We are also continuing to discuss the Holocaust and Anne Frank's diaries.

Maths: our topic is algebra.  We are learning about number sequences, function machines and how to solve missing number problems.

English: our class book is the WWII-themed Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo.  In our writing, we are studying informal letters and are composing letters to Anne Frank, showing empathy for her work and respect for her talent and legacy. 

Science: our topic is Evolution and Inheritance.  We have been learning about the different theories of evolution over time.

P.E.: we are perfecting our strategies and skills in the game of dodgeball.
