This term, our theme is the Ancient Greeks. We will be creating papier mâché masks, learning about the impact which the Greeks have had on our lives, finding out about key people such as Pheidippides and much more. Our Literacy will also link with this theme. We will begin with Odysseus’ adventure stories and have a go at writing our own. Then we will be learning about journalistic writing so that we can report on the Battle of Marathon!
In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and the four operations. After half term, we will work on fractions, geometry, position and direction. In each Maths lesson we will consolidate what we have learnt by completing ‘fluency’ questions and then applying that knowledge to reasoning and problem solving questions.
Our PE lessons will be on Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure that the correct kit is worn. As winter approaches, make sure there are warm clothes available.
We have many exciting activities coming up this term, such as: Bikeability, Swimming and a Christmas pantomime.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
