Y5/6 This Term

 Term 3
Welcome back! Happy New Year - we hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break and are rested and rejuvenated ready for another fun-filled term! This term our topic is called Bella Italia. This is primarily a Geography-based topic though your children will be pleased to know there will also be a primary focus on cooking! The topic will be launched with a WOW day where we will be tasting and evaluating some Italian dishes. 
Our English focus this term will be centred around Shakespeare's - Romeo and Juliet. We will be doing a number of fiction and non-fiction pieces of writing from this. 
For more details on the topic for this term, please see curriculum overview on the other tab. 
This year the children will have their French, PE and Music lessons on a Thursday afternoon.  Their second PE lesson will be on a Wednesday so please ensure PE kits are in school on the correct days.
We would really appreciate it if you could ensure all of your children's uniform is labelled with their name - you would be amazed at how many children constantly lose their clothes and it is almost impossible to find it when it isn't labelled! 
As always, we are keen to invite parents in to hear children read, help with trips or to talk to our children about an expertise you may have so please get in touch with your child's teacher if you feel you may be able to help.
