Term 4 Round up

Term 4 has drawn to an end and we are rapidly moving into Term 5. This term we concluded our work on the Mayans, exploring the culture, buildings and the advanced number and writing systems.

We have written instructions texts and discussion texts about whether children should be sent to Camp Green Lake. Maths work concluded our work on geometry, with transition and coordinates of shapes. We then worked on reading and interpreting pie charts. 

We revisited the Easter story and wrote diaries and recounts about this. A visit to the Easter Maze at St Mary's church, was a great end to this RE Day topic.

Term ends this week with Shirehampton University challenge, a performance based activity. Further dramatic events will be upcoming, as we complete auditions for our Term 6 production! Watch this space...

Year 6 have their PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Children should come into school wearing their PE kit to ensure they can get maximum time within their PE lessons.

For PE, children should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms that are plain and dark in colour - dark blue, black or grey. They should not have large logos on. Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red).


Trainers are needed as footwear for PE and must also be a dark colour.
