Welcome back Olive Class! I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter holiday and that you are ready for some really exciting learning this term.

During the Summer term, our project question is, 'What did the Greeks do for us?'. During this project the children will learn about the Greeks through History, art, music and dance. In particular, we will focus on Greek architecture. The children will also be designing and making Greek musical instrumnets as part of their home learning

 This half term we will be focusing on non-fiction writing. We will use Wallace and Gromit's inventions to enhance learning, along with teaching the skills that are needed for the children to independently write their own explanation texts.

The children will continue to learn a range of grammar skills which they can apply to their independent writing. Use this website at home to help your child with their grammar skills.
