What a pleasure it has been to see the children's resilience in completing their Bikeability sessions. In horrendous weather conditions of wind, rain and plunging temperatures, they showed great perseverance by completing the course and we are proud of them. This, coupled with the enthusiasm and determination of our World Cup Times Table Challenge, has shown the strength of character we have as a class!
For Interfaith Week, we have been learning about Humanism. The highlight of the week was the visit of Jane, a Humanist who spoke to us in-depth about her views and beliefs.
Other activities have included focuses based on some of the key principles of Humanism, such as the concept of goodness, giving our opinions on a range of moral dilemmas; creating our ‘Happy Human’ using one of the key logos of Humanism and collaborating to produce a persuasive piece on why we should give money to specific charities.
As well as Humanism, we have also been working on our class’ school value, Truth, culminating in our terrific canvas, featuring a range of Bible verses relating to the concept of truth.
