Summer 1

 

This half term, our topic is Gods and Mortals. The focus is on Greek myths and legends, including Theseus & the Minotaur, Icarus & Daedalus, Pandora and Zeus.

 

English
The children will be writing explanation texts about machines, before looking at Greek myths and writing their own, based on Theseus & the Minotaur...
 
Maths
In Maths, the children will be developing their number skills, looking at place value and formal written methods for all 4 operations. They will also be practising mental skills, such as number bonds and times table knowledge. We will also look at fractions, measures, time and data handling.
The cross-curricular link will be using position and direction in a labyrinth!
 
Reading
At the end of the day, we will read 'The Demon Headmaster' by Gillian Cross.
