Welcome to the Summer Term. This term out topic is Vikings and Anglo Saxons! In English we will be reading The Saga of Erik the Viking by Terry Jones and using this text as inspiration for writing our own myths. In view of this, if you could read some myths and legends over the next few weeks with your children, it will hopefully inspire them to write some imaginative stories of their own. In Science we will be learning about forces and magnets and hopefully completing lots of practical and interesting investigations. In RE we are going to be studying Buddhism and hope to link this to a visit to a Buddhist temple if possible. We will keep you updated if and when this is arranged.
The new approach to homework was a big success last term so we will be continuing with it this term. We will send out a new Viking/Anglo Saxon themed homework menu in the first week back.
Please continue to read at home as often as you can and help your child with learning their weekly spellings. For the first week back we will still be on last terms spelling list but will start the summer list after that. Please check your child’s reading diary on a Friday to find the new words for the upcoming week.
