Miss Darbourne, Sue and Melissa
We are currently reading 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman.
In History, we are learning about Crime and Punishment throughout history. We will recap the different eras we have studied and create timelines of key events. We will generate questions for historical enquiry, as well as examine a range of different historical sources.
In Science, we are learning about electricity and will identify common appliances that run on electricity. We will construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers. We will also identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit using our knowledge.
In RE, we are learning about Buddhism and the Buddhist community worldwide. We will learn about how Buddhists worship and different pilgrimages.
