Within this theme, we will be exploring the life and achievements of the ancient Greeks We will be specifically looking at their huge influence of The Greeks on today's society.

In English, we will be reading and responding to a range of texts including Greek myths. We will also be thinking about what life was like for The Greeks and how we can find out about their lives through artefacts. In Geography, we will be looking at the climate and terrain of Grrece and how this affected the country in terms of trade,politics, farming and war. Where possible lessons will be cross-curricular which means that units of English, History, Geography, Art and Design will be linked together to create a more broad experience.

We are continuing with our writing project- IPEELL,which aims to accelerate progress in writing for all, linking writing units to our Greek theme where possible.

See the Curriculum Overview plan-Spring 2019 below for more details of our learning this term. 



  • Children in 5H should be in the habit of reading daily. Reading diaries will be checked on a daily basis.

  • Spellings will be sent home to learn on a Monday and will be tested the following Monday.
  • Spag and Mathletics homework will be set every Thursday.
  • Regular tables practice is needed to ensure the children can recall all their tables quickly and confidently. Please use Tables Rock Stars to help with this.



Additional Information

It is very important that children practice their times tables regularly. Children are expected to know their times tables to 12x12 by the end of Year 4 and much of the work that we do in maths lessons requires quick and accurate times tables recall. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. In addirion to Tables Rock Stars please enjoy exploring the times tables activities below:
