We care, we share, for the future we prepare

Spring term

In Maths this term we will be covering multiplication and division, fractions, percentages and decimals.


The focus of our English lessons will be relative clauses and using a range of devices for cohesion. These include punctuation (colons, brackets), adverbial phrases to make links throughput a piece of writing and carefully structuring our paragraph . We will be exploring different types of text and other media to look at how other authors use these different writing structures effectively to then try and use them ourselves in our own writing.


This term our topic is Ancient Greece! We will be looking at 'what the Greeks have done for us', how the Greek people lived in the past and how that has influenced us today. We will look at Greek art, pottery, sports and democracy.
