In English we are continuing our investigation into how we know what is the right thing to do.  We are reading ‘Red Scarf Girl,’ and seeing things gets progressively worse for Ji Li and her family during the cultural revolution.  Students have just completed a four corner debate asking for their reactions to statements, with reasons which are based on the book.  For instance, they considered scenarios such as whether books that promote harmful ideas should be banned or whether loyalty to the leadership of a country is more important then family.


In Individuals and Societies we have continued our investigations into revolutions.  This time we are looking at political revolutions, using Russia and China as examples.  Students have created mind maps on causes of political revolutions and have just completed source analysis on the February revolution.
