Welcome to Hawks
This term our topic is called ‘A Grecian Odyssey‘. We will be studying Greek life and their achievements and influence on the western world. As part of our topic work we will briefly look at the Mayan civilisation as a contrast to British Society.
If your child has any brochures, postcards or artefacts from Greece that they would like to share with the class, please send them into school in a named bag. We also welcome any visitors who would like to share their knowledge of Greece with us – please send in a note if you have time to come in one afternoon.
As part of our English, we will be looking at Who Let The Gods out as our class text – linking this to lots of writing styles. We will also explore Greek Myths and Aesop’s Fables. We will continue to focus on formal grammar terms and recapping all the children’s grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS) knowledge in readiness for our mock SATS week in March.
Maths this term will focus on the children’s knowledge of shapes and their fluency when using the four operations - including further practice of formal methods of multiplication and division. As always, we are focussing on problem-solving and reasoning within all of our Maths topics.
We look forward to seeing Dads, Grandads, Uncles and other male relatives on the afternoon of 18th January, to help us design and make our shields! Please remember to collect your recyclable materials that can be used for this activity and bring them into school the week of the 12th January.
