We are Griffins class (Years 5 and 6). Our class is taught by Mrs Morris on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday mornings and Thursday mornings and by Ms. Griffiths on Thursday afternoons and Fridays.
Spring Term 2019
Our exciting topic this term will be Ancient Greece.
We will study this through a variety of subjects including English, Geography, History, Computing, Art and Design Technology. We will learn about many aspects of the history of Ancient Greece, including myths and legends, gods, the beginning of democracy and warfare. In computing, we will use search technologies and consider ways to present information.
We are also hoping that a team of engineers from Rolls Royce will be coming into school later in the term to do some STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) work with the class, with a focus on Ancient Greece.
In Maths this term, we will mainly focus on fractions, decimals and percentages, while continuing to improve our use of calculations and understanding of number.
We will be studying Earth and Space and changes to old age.
In the first few weeks of term, we will also be focussing our English lessons on journalistic writing, through use of the Guardian's award-winning 'Three little pigs' advert. Already the children are beginning to produce some impressive examples of first drafts...
Please come into the classroom at any time to have a look at your child's work, both around the classroom and in their books.
