Summer Term 2022

In Chestnut class we are studying the Ancient Greeks and have been discovering the many things we have to thank them for: art, sculpture, architecture, science, medicine and mathematics to name but a few.

In Maths our current focus in year 5 is fractions and we have been identifying equivalent fractions. Year 6 are just beginning a topic on properties of shape and will be getting to grips with measuring different types of angles with a protractor and learning the names of all the many different polygons.

In English we are learning about the adventures of Odysseus and loving it! We are looking forward to reading Greek myths and using them to inspire poetry writing. We will be making shadow puppet theatres and retelling Greek myths using our theatres.
