Our week in school and things to remember:

What are we learning about this term?

Our topic this term is the “Swingin’ 60s”. In literacy we will be studying biographies and this will be based on key figures from the 1960’s such as John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Martin Luther King. Later on in the topic we will be studying poetry and making presentations on key events from the 1960’s. In numeracy we will be revising for the Welsh Government Numeracy Tests as well as starting to prepare for maths in high school.  In science we will be studying water life and continuing to work through practical investigations in class.  Through our topic we will be doing plenty of history. We will be comparing life in the 1960s to modern day life. We will look at fashion, music and art from the 1960’s and the impact in had Britain and the world. In Design we will be making Tie dye t-shirts.


Learning at home

Children will be given preparation papers for the upcoming tests. They will be expected to learn their weekly spellings and their times tables.

New spelling lists will also be sent home on a Friday. We practise these in school too.
