In year 5 for this term we are learning about Ancient Greece and looking at some of the myths and legends associated with this topic. We have already started with Theseus and the Minotaur. We are continuing to study French and are currently learning how to say the days and months and eventually the date.
We will have weekly homework which is set on a Wednesday and needs to be returned on the following Monday. Sometimes this will include some research. There will be a spelling test each Wednesday morning.
PE kits are required every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please check that your child has everything named and that their trainers and clothing fit.
The children are encouraged to read at least 3 times each week, if they write some comments into their reading record book about what has been read, they can earn extra house points.
