We have a wonderful topic all about The Greek World this half term. This will involve an exciting visit to the British Museum that will show the children artefacts and explore Lord Elgin’s Marbles. If you are wondering why we are going to be looking at The Greeks, this links to an amazing story we will be reading called ‘Who Let the Gods Out?’. We will also be looking at Terry Deary’s Amazing Greek Legends and writing some of our own legends from that time. After half term, we will be exploring a topic called The Future is Wild and will look at how the world has changed over millions of years.
In addition to all of these exciting experiences, we will be concentrating on the entire Mathematics curriculum in preparation for the SATs exams which take place in the Summer term.
In Science, we will look at the topic of Light and how light travels, how the eye works and explore shadows and why they are made in different shapes and sizes. Linking to our Future is Wild topic, we will be looking at evolution and inheritance.
Mrs James will be taking art on Thursday afternoons for the third of the year group that do have PE with Mr Donovan.
We will also be looking at Understanding Christianity in R.E and why the resurrection of Jesus is important to Christians as well as looking at what religions say when life gets hard.
Mr Kidd, Mrs Varachhia and Miss Rees
