Firstly, let's reflect on a brilliant launch session to our new topic: The Ancient Greeks!
It sounds like the children had an amazing whistlestop tour of Greek traditions, including: fashion, sports (Olympic Games), food, music and dance. Hopefully this has inspired us all ready for a term full of Groovy Greeks!
Our English focus this week, is on writing grammatically correct sentences. Once we have the building blocks firmly in place, we can make our descriptive writing exciting, gripping and easy to read! Aim high, Class 5DM - let's make all our verbs, adjectives and adverbs A++.
In Maths, we will cover a range of concepts, such as: Factors/multiples, prime/square and cube numbers and place value.
During Art lessons, we will study Ancient Greek pottery and begin to look at different sketching techniques.
Parents/Carers, three key documents were sent home this evening: Autumn Term curriculum map, homework letter and Autumn Term key dates. The three documents are also attached to the foot of this page. Thank you!
