Mathematics: Currently in Mathematics we are looking at number. We have been focusing on our four operations and arithmetic skills. This will lead us into our next topic which shall be fractions, decimals and percentages.
English: In our English lessons we are studying William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. We shall also be performing this as a play on November 11th at the Z-Arts theatre in Manchester. Over the course of the year we shall also be studying Palacio's Wonder, as well as I am Malala.
Humanities: Over the Autumn term, our focus in humanities is The Second World War, we shall be discussing the key events, key people and key countries, progressing this onto looking at our local area during the War.
