In Autumn 2, our theme is 'Challenging Stereotypes,'focussing mainly on the history of the changing role of women. This will tie in with our learning in PHSE about attitudes and values around gender stereotyping and sexuality. In R.E, we will further consider values and codes for living linked to religious and non-religious beliefs.
