Spring 2 Half Term Information 2021

In Year 5 last half term we have been immersed in our topic of Ancient Greece. The children loved learning about Greek myths, Greek gods, and the differences between Sparta and Athens. Particular writing highlights include the children's own Greek myth and a letter persuading Spartans to join the Athenians. In maths we continued our learning through Power Maths, focusing largely on other fractions. Learning all about forces in science built on prior learning from KS1, which the children enjoyed reminiscing about. During PE lessons, the children loved learning the basics of cricket and aspects of gymnastics in the hall. The standout highlight of the half term has to be the fantastic production 'Go for gold'. The dedication the children showed to learning their lines and putting together the best performance possible in the circumstances was really impressive.
