PE lessons:

 For the first half-term we will be having swimming lessons. Group 1 and 3 will be on Wednesday, whereas group 3 will be on three will be on the Thursday.

Outdoor PE:

Football will be our the focus of our outdoor sessions. As Autumn and Winter approach please ensure your children have clothing to keep them sufficiently warm for the whole hour.

Topics:

We will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks, focusing on the nation states of Greece from the time. This will give us a great opportunity to study the birth of democracy. 

 

English:

We will be reading through a fantastic book called the girl of the ink and stars. We will be basing a scheme of work off this and will eventually be creating our own myths and fantasy epics. If you want to read through the book with your child it's available from Waterstones for £6.99.

 

 Homework:

All homework is set on Monday and due the following Monday at 9am.

The homework is SPAG, Mathletics (1000 points), Rockstar Timetables as well as weekly spelling and reading. The login and password for every child's account can be found in their diary along with the websites,

Reading

It is imperative for the progression of your children's English that you find time to read with you child weekly. This doesn't need to be for long, but finding 5-10 minute gaps in which you can read, and expose your child to vocabulary and texts they might not otherwise be able to access would be hugely beneficial.
