What an interesting week we have had!

As part of our World War Two topic, this week, we have been doing some internet research on evacuees and watching videos of their stories. Some of us have great-grandparents who were in the war, and while it's a fascinating topic for us, it's hard for us to fully understand what it was like to live through that time and what we would have felt like if we'd have had to leave our famillies.

In RE, we have been looking at the story of Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the eduction of women and children in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school.

We have been calculating statistics and reading timetables in maths. Some of us hadn't ever attempted to read a timetable before, even though we've seen them, so we've been learning very valuble life lessons this week!

In PE we have been playing football with Mr Bates and continuing our work on Pointillism with Mrs Mason during art.

War poems have featured very heavily in our english lessons this week. We have been focusing on how the scenarios in the poems might have made the people involved feel and what they might have been able to hear or see.
