In our Religious Education theme, we will be exploring the question: ‘How do different religions celebrate marriage?’ Throughout this unit, children will be learning about different types of celebrations and thinking about what is special to them. We will be finding out about different ways to celebrate marriage across a variety of religious communities and reflecting on what we believe about marriage. Within this unit, children will also be developing their Computing and D.T skills in preparing digital presentations and creating a traditional meal from a chosen religion.

 

 

In Computing this term, we will be focusing on ‘Networks’ and ‘Quizzing’. Children will be working hard on developing their knowledge and understanding of computer networks and how the Internet works. Later on in the term, we will be learning how to use different question types and databases to create a variety of quizzes both for younger children and adults!

 

In Music this term, we will be listening to a mix of contemporary music, listening to (and learning) the songs ‘You’ve Got a Friend’ and ‘Music and Me’. We will be developing our musical skills by listening and appraising, engaging in a variety of musical activities, singing and performing. Our musical instrument this term is ‘keyboards’ so we are looking forward to continuing to develop our composition skills in learning to play this instrument.

 

In Physical Education this term, we will begin by developing our skills in ‘Striking and Fielding’ through playing Cricket. We will also be enhancing our skills in Dance during our ‘Earthlings’ unit! Later on in the term, we will be focusing on Rounders and Athletics as we prepare for Sports Day! Please note that Class 10’s P.E day is Monday, Class 9’s is Friday and Class 11’s is Tuesday.

 

In Personal, Social and Health Education this term, we will be thinking all about our physical health and wellbeing. We will be exploring this topic, alongside our weekly assembly themes, and learning about sun safety, coping with change and transition and moving on. We will continue to enjoy our weekly circle time sessions to discuss our thoughts and ideas respectfully.
