This term our project is Ancient Greece

We will be finding out about life in Ancient Greece, comparing the city states of Athens and Sparta and learning about the Ancient Greek Gods. In Geography we will be learning where Modern day Greece is in the world and comparing our home town of Shrewsbury with another European country. In Science we are investigating light and shadows. Our Art focus will be on sculpture.

Water Bottles - You should have a named water bottle in class so you can drink during class time. Please only fill your bottle with water rather than juice etc.

Reading

It is really important that you read with your child at least 5 times a week.

To support your child at home with their reading you could use lots of different questioning techniques. Asking your child to repeat/ summarise what they have read or picking specific events in the book to talk about will help you to understand what they have learnt. You can find lots of example questions to ask your child here.

Reading books will be sent home with each child and upon their return we will ensure to leave adequate time before given them out to any other children

Please have a look for any reading books from last term that you may still have at home and bring them back to us as soon as possible.
