Today we have had a SPARKLING START to our Ancient Greece topic. Not only did we dress up, but we tasted Greek food, listened to traditional Greek music and participated in some Olympic sports: javelin, discus, jumping and running. The winners got to wear their olive wreaths that they made in the morning.

Must do at home, please: (reviewed termly)

 Homework Expectations – Year 4 & 5 Homework will be set every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Pupils are expected to complete every set task. Generally, homework will be one piece chosen from a selection on the homework grid and a set of spellings to learn. Additionally, children must read and record their reading in their diaries at least three times each week. Work in books is expected to be of the same standard as work in school, with neat handwriting, diagrams in pencil and care take to include appropriate punctuation and good spelling.  

Additional ways to support your child/book lists:

Please continue to learn and practice times tables.
