Inspired by the poem “Heartwood” by Robert Macfarlane from The Lost Spells, we held a debate about HS2 in class. We used the power of arguemnt to try and persuade the other side to take our point of view. We were all very concerned about the environmental impact of this project on our ancient woodlands.

In Science, we reseached animals in different envinronments and explained how they are adapted to the conditions in which they live.

Maths found us relecting and translating shapes using coordinates in all four quadrants.

In R.E,, we reflected on why people pray and how this helps them. We also learnt about prayers from different religions and compared them.

Here we are in the middle of the debate about HS2:
