Welcome to Term 5, the first of our two summer terms. We do hope that you had a lovely Easter holiday and that you are feeling refreshed and ready to start work.
We start a brand new topic this term based on the Aztec civilisation. We will be learning about: who the Aztec people were; where they came from; how they organised their society and how they influenced civilizations that followed them. In Art, we will create our own Aztec animal printing blocks, which we will use to produce Aztec repeating pattern designs.
P.E. will take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday. We are hoping that Dauntsey Outreach Sport will resume on a Tuesday and Mr.Herring will be taking your P.E. on a Wednesday. You will therefore need to come to school in your P.E. kit on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
In P.S.H.E., we will be exploring how different types of drugs (including alcohol) affect our body and evaluating when alcohol is being used responsibly, anti-socially or mis-used. We will consider what is meant by being emotionally well and explore people’s attitudes towards mental health. In addition, we will identify the most significant people in our lives and explore feelings of loss, sadness and grief.
You will continue to have weekly spellings to learn. Tests will be on a Monday, except for Bank Holiday week when the test will be on a Tuesday. You will be given the spellings to learn each week along with a plan for learning them over the course of the week. Please return this spelling plan on a Monday.
You will be given a project to do over the course of this term. This replaces your weekly SPaG/comprehension work. You will need to use your SPaG and writing skills though to complete the project work set. Details of this project will be given to you during the first week of term. We are asking you to complete the work on Google Classroom and submit the work through Google Classroom too.
From Week 2 to Week 6, there will also be a Science homework grid as we explore the current events of the Mars Mission. This ties in nicely with our Science work on Earth and Space.
We are looking forward to seeing you all.
Remember all of our learning is on our Owls Google Classroom. If you are learning at home, take a look at the classwork page and get in touch on our Stream.
