Summer Term 2018
Welcome back! I hope that you have had a lovely Easter break and a well deserved rest, and are now ready to learn new things.
This term we will be learning all about the Vikings in History, and we will be comparing Britain with Scandinavia in Geography.
Our themes in English are Myths and Legends and we have linked our text to our History topic. The children will be reading and writing about 'The saga of Eric the Viking' by Terry Jones. In view of this, if you could direct your children to read different myths and legends over the next few weeks, this will hopefully inspire them to write some imaginative stories in school.
In Science we will be learning all about forces and magnets and we look forward to doing lots of practical work and interesting investigations.
Please see the full topic web which shows topics / themes for all other areas of the curriculum and check the website for any further updates.
Homework -- The children appeared to really enjoy their new approach to homework choosing from the homework menu linked to their current topic. A new homework menu will be sent out with the children during the first week back at school and a copy will also be available on the web site.
Spellings-- Will continue on a weekly basis. Test and new spellings each Tuesday ( unless there are any unforeseen circumstances.) The Summer Term spelling lists for this half term are attached at the top of this page. The spelling list with the heading week 1 will be given to the children on the 17th April.
Our class dojo messaging service has proved to be very useful, so please continue to use this if needed.
