This term we will be continuing with our new curriculum. We will be finishing up our Geography work before moving on to a History focus. Children will be learning about the Ancient Greeks and how they have influenced the modern world. We will look at timelines and order key events. We will look at how their technological advancements changed farming, at the development of democracy and the Olympics. Our core text for writing will be ‘Leo and the Gorgon’s curse’ by Joe Todd-Stanton and in Maths we will be focusing on multiplication and division before moving onto fractions. In our PSHE lessons, we will be following the Jigsaw scheme and will be exploring circuits in PE.
Please note that PE days have changed.

This term we will be beginning our new curriculum starting with a Geography focus. Children will be exploring maps and learning to locate Bristol, the UK and other countries in the world. They will be learning about climate zones and the equator. In science, we will be exploring states of matter. Our core text for writing will be ‘Varjak Paw’ by SF Said and in Maths we will be focusing on the four operations. We will be looking at RSE in our Jigsaw sessions and will be learning multiskills in PE.
The focus this term is the recovery curriculum. We will be focusing on settling back to learning after a long time away. PSHE will be our main focus to help ensure that children are emotionally and mentally prepared for the year ahead. The children will also catch up on science that they missed from the summer term, this is a unit about plants. As our English text is linked to the circus, we will also be creating circus themed art. In RE, we will be looking at how the global pandemic has impacted different religions. Athletics will be our PE focus. Please remember to have your kit in school.
Spellings will be posted by Friday 11th September.
