We hope you have had a great Easter holiday. We are looking forward to a wonderful Summer Term.
Throughout our curriculum, we will be continuing our development of a Growth Mindset to enable us to approach all aspects of life with resilience, respect and tolerance.
Our Creative Curriculum topic this term is all about The Ancient Greeks. We have lots of exciting lessons planned. We will become historians and discover what life was like for Ancient Greeks. We will study battles, professions, education, as well as looking at Greek Mythology. We will hold our own Olympic games and make pottery using artefacts as a stimulus.
In English, we will initially be looking at a text called Hermelin, the detective mouse. We will then go on to look a range of genres including persuasive writing, recounts, narrative and non-chronological reports.
Maths lessons will be taught from our Power Maths scheme. Over the term, we will cover lots of new maths topics, add to skills we already have and develop them even further! To start off the term we will be looking at geometry, statistics and problem solving.
The homework expectations remain the same as last year. You will have weekly spellings, which will be tested on a Friday. In your spelling practice book, you will need to practise your spellings three times a week. You will need to read at home at least three times a week and your planner will need to be signed by an adult. You should be using Times Tables Rock Stars regularly. Remember to check Google Classroom regularly for extra practice of key skills and revision.
Please come to school in your PE kit on your PE days (red school jumper, white polo shirt and plain black shorts or jogging bottoms).
Your PE days are:
6 Gold (Mrs Arends) – Thursday and Friday
6 Ochre (Mr March) – Thursday and Friday

Mrs Arends and Mr March
