Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back after the week's break to Term 2. This term our topic is the Ancient Greeks.
A fascinating period of history, Ancient Greece formed the foundation of much of our culture today. Everything from government, philosophy, science, mathematics, art, literature, and even sports, has been influenced by the Ancient Greeks. Over this next term, we will be looking at different aspects and learning how the people lived their lives around what they believed and how it affected what they did.
In maths, we are continuing with division and the formal methods of short and long division. The knowledge of times tables is really important, especially in using division, so please encourage your child to practice a little every day. Don't forget they have a login to Times Times Rocks Stars.
Reminders: P.E. days continue to be Tuesday and Friday for Year 6. Forest School for Year 5s is on Tuesday and P.E. is on Friday.
