We are very excited to be starting our new topic about the ancient Greeks and their legacy. In English, we're studying the story of Odysseus and we'll be writing our own chapters for this epic tale. In history, we'll learn about the legacy of the Olympic Games; the way democracy started in Athens and how it has evolved today. We'll even learn about the Suffragettes and how this movement changed the lives of women. We'll also be looking at a number of sources to be able to answer the question: would you prefer to be an Athenian or a Spartan? In art, we'll examine Greek art and myths and legends and create our own print from our Odysseus chapter.
PE this term is Tag Rugby outside and Stretch and Balance inside. Please remember to wear PE kit to school on these days.
In maths, we'll be learning about percentages and their equivalence to fractions and decimals. Then, we'll be finding percentage of amounts. When this unit finishes we will begin our geometric reasoning unit, looking at shapes and angles.
As always, if you have any concerns or issues that need addressing, please email the school via the class comms or speak to us at the door.
Each half term we carry out our learning through different topics. Information on these topics will be shared with you on Google Classroom as well as on this web site. You will be able to see weekly homework tasks as well as finding out more information about what your child has been learning through our weekly newsletters.
