Happy new year! What a fantastic return to school this week. The children have shown real enthusiasm and have come back ready to learn. 

Home Learning Task

For the home learning task this week, we would like the children to imagine they have the opportunity to go on a ‘round the world’ trip.

Weekly Review:

This week in PSHE, the children’s learning has been inspired by the book and short film ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’ written by Charlie Mackesy.

They explored the messages of kindness, courage and friendship and linked this to their own lives and relationships. They illustrated their own work with similar sketches and wrote their favourite quote from the book.

In Religious Education, the children started off their learning about Buddhism by researching the key beliefs and practices of the religion. They spent time researching and finding out about how Buddhism came to Britain and what life is like in Britain for a practising Buddhist. They were lucky enough to interview one of our very own pupils  which was hugely insightful and interesting. This led on to them creating their own symbols to express these key beliefs and practices.
