We hope that you had a brilliant and relaxing Easter holiday and that you enjoyed both eating chocolate and having fun outside.

This term we will explore Early Islamic Civilisation in R.E., History and Geography by travelling back to Baghdad (Iraq) and Damascus (Syria). During Art lessons, we will re-create beautiful Early Islamic Art.

In Literacy, we will study “Hermelin the Detective Mouse” by Mini Grey, which will allow us to write various texts of different genres using the Spelling, Punctuation And Grammar (SPAG) rules that we have learnt.

 

 

In Mathematics we will focus on Sats revisions in the first few weeks and will revisit Measurements, Geometry, Statistics, Ratio and Proportion, Position and Direction through practical activities.

In Science we will investigate electric circuits and learn about inheritance and evolution.

We will use the internet to carry out some research linked to our topic and Science in Computing lessons.
