Welcome back to Term 5, hopefully a sunny one! This term our Topic is The Romans. During this topic the children will learn about the Roman empire and its impact on Britain. Look out for the homework linked to our topic as this also supports our end of topic celebration day on Wednesday 26th May.
Linked with our Romans history topic we will be reading the book Escape from Pompeii, from this the children will produce some wonderful diary recounts and narrative writing.
This term the children will have their PE lessons on a Thursday and Friday, please ensure the children come to school in their correct PE kit, this should be weather appropriate. We have noticed lots of non uniform PE kits coming in so please can you make sure the children wear the correct kit.
Very exciting news at last that Y4 have now secured a great fun day out at Mojo Active, in replacement of Y4 camp, on Friday 16th July, a letter has already been sent out from the office, more information will follow soon.
This term we have really increased our focus on the teaching of reading at St. John’s as part of our School Improvement Plan. We have really enjoyed seeing the children’s confidence in discussing texts in class. To support us we would love children to both read and be read to as much as possible at home. There is a list of recommended reads on the class pages of the website.
Please see the yearly overview for more details on curriculum for this term.
