Welcome back after the summer holiday! Our topic this term is The Victorians- learning about what life was like in the local area as a child. We will be looking at the spread of the British Empire in Geography and assessing it's impact on modern Britain. In English we will be reading the two texts: The Varmints by Helen Ward and Cogheart by Peter Bunzl. Please try to purchase a copy or request one from the school so that you can read at home and at school.
In Art and DT we will be looking at the work of William Morris and creating printwork in the same style; and sculpting using clay.
We will learn about keeping safe on the internet and building our understanding of coding through development of animated stories using Scratch.
In Science we will be studying Evolution and Inheritance. Our PHSE will focus on the importance of valuing yourself and recognising your own strengths. In RE we look at the Creation story and how Christians have different ways of looking at Genesis.
Don't forget to keep your skills sharp on TTRS or Hit The Button. I would also like you to review the Year 5/6 spelling list below and see which spellings you need to practise when you come back.
