What are learning in RE?

During this time we will be following God Matters unit Easter. This unit provides opportunities to explore in real detail the events of the Easter season. This is achieved by examining the parallel accounts of the Gospels. The Christian beliefs in eternal life are explored through examination of Scripture and the Catholic funeral liturgy.

 What are we learning in Computing?

We are travel writers, using media and mapping to document a trip. In this unit pupils document an educational visit. They research thier destination and explore different routes. While there, they capture photographs, audio and video. On return they add this content to a digital map. The children will be doing a digital map of our school.
