Topic

This term we are going to continue with our topic, The Tudors. We will be learning about King Henry's children Edward, Mary and Elizabeth and exploring their role in history.  We will also be learning more about The Tudor lifestyle. 

P.E.

P.E sessions this term will be with Andy Booker every Wednesday afternoon with Year 5, so can you please ensure that your child has their kit in school, including trainers, a t-shirt, shorts, hat and sun cream now that it is sunny.

Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)
We are very lucky to have weekly French lessons with Madam Valerie Neaves on a Wednesday afternoon. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to continue to learn a different language.

Homework
Your child is expected to learn their spellings every week. Your spellings will be set at the beginning of the term and tested every Friday. 

Our homework is set through a task board at the beginning of each term. The due in date is the 7th July.

Expectations for homework...

Always make sure you take the same care with your homework as you do with your school work.

Reading
Your child’s reading book is sent home every night and they are encouraged to read at home as often as possible. Reading is such an important aspect of your child’s education so if you could listen to your child read 5 times a week, even if it is only a few pages, it would really be appreciated!
