TERM 6 OVERVIEW

Term 6

This term we will be continuing our work for our Lincolnshire Show entry entitled ‘Farming Through the Ages’. We are going to be looking at modern day farming so that we can compare this with what we learned last term about farming in different historical periods. We will be presenting out work at the show on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd June.

We will also be continuing out theme work on Ancient Greece, looking at Greek myths, the Olympic Games and what legacy they left on the modern world. In Re, we will be looking at the Bible and how important it is to Christians.

 

PE Kit - Please can you ensure PE kits are brought into school on Monday morning. This includes appropriate outdoor footwear.

Our PE sessions for this term are Thursday morning (outdoor) and Friday morning (indoor).
