This week we've read the book "Hidden Figures" about 4 black women who overcame prejudice to work for the U.S.A.'s space agency - NASA.
We found out how they refused to let sexist and racist attitudes and laws prevent them from reaching their goals.
We've also learnt about the treatment of Jews under the Nazi regime in Europe during WW2 - the horrific treatment and reasons behind it.
Some really important, challenging and emotive lessons.
We're looking forward to catching up with art and "display day" next week when we get to be even more creative and refresh the displays in the corridor and classroom to show off what we've learnt.
Thanks to the children for their mature and thoughtful attitude this week.
