Summer Term
 We hope you had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready for some exciting topics this term! 

This term we will be learning about stories from other cultures, short stories, poetry, persuasive writing and dramatic conventions.

The children will study the Aztecs and find out about life in what is now modern day Mexico.
Features studied will include key Aztec dates, social order, the creation of Tenochtitlan, schools, food and Aztec gods.

Additionally, Children will look at the origins of the Bible, analyse Biblical quotes, investigate the story of creation and research what baptism means in Christianity.

This year homework will be set on a Wednesday and due in on a Monday. There will be three pieces each week: 
  • Maths
  • Spellings
  • Two other pieces (e.g. topic, comprehension, project)
   Aztec project
We are starting an Aztec project which is due in Monday 22nd May.
Each week, we will give a focus area of study to support the children in managing their time effectively and to build on their projects week by week.

  • Title page
  • Contents page
  • At least 1 sheet of A4 for the area of study given each week
  • The children can use a variety of research sources such as the internet, books, audio books, trips to museums etc. We are encouraging the children not to copy and paste but to try and write information in their own words.

5R - PE will be on a Wednesday and a Friday.
5S - PE will be on a Thursday and a Friday.

Please ensure children have the the correct full PE kit.
