Dear Parents and Carers,
This week we are thinking how important the gods of Ancient Greece were to the culture and society of the people at that time. Will be using our writing imaginatively to apply for the position of 'King of the Gods' and thinking why the position had become vacant in the first place. We will also be studying the Greek empire and finding out how and why they became so powerful.
In maths, we are continuing with division and the formal methods of 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. We have been learning a way to remember to song! 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.
