This week's learning

 
Date Week Beginning: 23rd April 2018
Mathematics

In Maths this week, we will be revisiting division and multiplication, but look at more formal methods with answers in fractions and decimals.

English

Our first new English unit of the term will be a cross-curriculum piece of work on Greek Myths. We'll be studying the Greek Gods and how, according to the ancient Greeks,  they influenced the forming of our Earth.

Topic

This term, Year 5's topic is The Ancient Greeks. We will look at the lives of the ancient Greeks and how they have influenced our lives in modern Britain.

The topic will include a trip to the British Museum, where, using an interactive quiz, pupils will learn about ancient Greek architectural styles and how the ancient Greek world was more diverse than they might have thought. They then use digital technology to design their own Greek temple.

Additional information

This term, indoor PE will be on Monday and Miss Shardlow will be taking the class to create an Ancient Greek battle dance.

Outdoor PE will be on Tuesday and Mr Moonie will cover rounders.

As it is still winter, we recommend that children have tracksuit bottoms and a jumper for outdoor PE, on Tuesday afternoons.
