Term 3 Overview

We are learning about Ancient Greece including the Ancient Greek way of life, the gods and goddesses, forms of government, and the first Olympics. In design and technology, the children will design and make items of pottery. In science in our topic on Forces, we will be using interactive models, literature and hands on science experiments to learn about the basic principles of push and pulls.

In English, we will be studying Ancient Greek myths including Theseus and the Minotaur. We will be using these texts to inspire a range of writing genres.

In Maths, our focus this term will be on number and place value, addition and subtraction, decimals and fractions.


We will only be having one more swimming lesson on Monday 9 January 2017. Students are not required to wear swimming caps for this occasion. For future swimming lessons in this and other year groups they will need to wear caps.
