Welcome to Class 8 - Year 4/5
Class Teacher: Miss Pegg
Welcome back to a new term and our final term together. This year has flown by! Soon we will all be in our new classes. But before that, we've saved the best topic until last...
This term we will be moving onto a new topic; Gods and Mortals
This is a History based topic, all about the fascinating Ancient Greeks. We will be looking at life as an Acient Greek, famous battles and the Ancient Olympics. We will be comparing Britain to Greece in Geography and designing Greek vases in Art. This topic also spills into our English themes with a big focus on myths and legends this half term.
In RE we will be completing a cross religion investigation focus sing on the question 'what is prayer?'
We will also be starting Athletics and catching and fielding in PE in early preparation for Sports Day!
Children will need their PE kits in school at the beginning of every week.
We will be doing PE on a Wednesday afternoon and then when appropriate we will be starting sports day practices and trials.
Homework will be sent home with children on a Friday. Homework is due back in the following Wednesday. If your child is struggling with their homework, there is a Homework Club on a Monday lunchtime they could attend.
Spellings for your children will be assigned by their Phonics teacher on a Friday. There will be a test on these spellings the following Friday in their Phonics lesson.
