Hi. I'm the class 3 teacher and I teach Year 5 and 6 children. Before I started teaching at this school, I spent two years travelling around the world exploring lots of wonderful countries. I love to spend as much time as I can outside although my new classroom is lovely. I enjoy all aspects of teaching but particularly art and forest school.

Welcome back everyone to a very busy Summer Term.

English: We will be reading Ancient Greek Myths and Legends as well as studying Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer's Nights Dream, which is based in Ancient Athens. We will be writing letters, posters, diaries, story-boards and newspaper articles linked to these stories.

Science: This term we will be learning about the life cycles of plants and animals including mammals, insects, birds and amphibians. The children will also learn about classification including organisms. 

Topic/History: Ancient Greece - we will be learning about daily life, warfare, beliefs, democracy and its impact on the modern world. 

RE: What does it mean to be a Muslim in British society today? Key questions: What do the 5 pillars of Islam teach Muslims? What are the differences between a holiday and a pilgrimage? 

DT: Using Ancient Greece as inspiration, we will create clay pots and modroc masks. 

PE: We are working on rounders and cricket skills and taking part in the cluster schools' competitions. The children will also take part in Sports day and the Cluster athletics. 

Maths: Ongoing work in number, geometry, measures, fractions and calculations (including times tables which children still need to practise).
