We hope that you have all had a restful Easter Break and are ready for a busy Summer Term. Our topic this term is Going for Gold, which covers the History of the Ancient Greeks with a strong sport and Human Body aspect. We will be studying the Ancient Greeks and the legacy that they have left for us. One aspect of this is the Olympic Games and we will be studying Muscles, Skeletons, Heart and Blood. We will look at how we can lead healthy lifestyles. Our Literacy work links to these topics too: Greek myths, History research and Explanations in Science.
For the first few weeks of term, we are obviously working particularly hard to prepare for the Y6 SATs, but our hard work will continue throughout the whole term, when we also have Forest Schools, Bikeability and a trip to Ardingly Showground for the 'Connect with the Countryside' day. We will also be preparing for an end of year play.
Weekly homework is given out on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday. It usually involves further Maths practice and English grammar or punctuation work. Year 6 have SATs practice booklets to use to support their revision for their tests. A topic homework list is attached at the bottom of this page.
PE this term will take place on Mondays and Fridays, so please make sure that PE kit is in school for these days. We also do our run when we can, so the children need their trainers for this.
If you have any questions about this term's work, please don't hesitate to ask!
