Our creative curriculum topic this term is 'Alexander to Zeus, Eureka it's the Greeks! Our main focus will be looking at the Ancient Greek civilisation and how it has impacted on the modern world we live in today. As we follow a creative curriculum, wherever possible, subjects will be linked to this topic through history, geography, art and DT. We will consolidate our learning on the Ancient Greeks with a visit to the British Museum on Thursday 28th March
Mrs Booker will continue to cover on a Thursday morning teaching the science and RE curriculum. Science for this term will focus on ‘properties and changing materials’ in spring term (1) and ‘forces’ in spring term (2). For the spring term RE will focus on ‘What would Jesus do, and can we live by the values of Jesus in the 21st century?
This term, we are basing our English learning around two texts, 'King of the Sky' by Nicola Davies and 'The Adventures of Odysseus' Homer’s classic poem retold by Hugh Lupton, Daniel Morden and Christina Balit. The Adventures of Odysseus also links to our topic on Ancient Greece!
Starting from the spring term homework will be taking a new look across the school with ‘Challenge Homework’ being set. At the start of each half term children will choose their homework challenges from a set list (on the class web page below ) It is hoped that children will pick tasks they enjoy, but will provide challenge as they learn new skills and try new things! The aim is to score at least 30 house points each half term (from a possible 60 house points)
Homework tasks are due in on Monday 11th February 2019
All children will have the opportunity to celebrate and share their work!
Spellings will continue to be set on a weekly basis and the weekly spelling list for the spring term (1) and spring term (2) are on the class web page below along with a copy of the statutory Year 5/6 spelling list
