This week, in Religion, the pupils read scripture from Exodus regarding the Sinai Covenant & the Ten Commandments. We had a wonderful discussion regarding how the current UK law shows footprints of the Ten Commandments. We also discussed at length, how although rules can be perceived as restrictive, in the case of the Israelites, they were actually a guide to freedom.
In English, the pupils edited and redrafted their persuasive letters using Old English. We were blown away by how persuasive our pupils can be (sorry parents!). We focused on using modal verbs of certainty, positive possibilities and emotive language to persuade Hansel & Gretel to enter our home.
In Science, we finished the week by creating posters regarding the impact of smoking, drinking and drugs on the heart.
And just like that, we are finished with Autumn 1! We wish you all a restful break, and can’t wait to see you back for Halloween!
