Class Teacher: Mr Olander
TA: Miss Cawthorne
Hello and welcome to the USA class page. It is good to be back at school!
Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit, which is suitable for outdoors (including appropriate footwear). Your child must also wear their blue federation hooded jumper. Children with long hair need to have this tied up for these lessons and any jewellery, including earrings, need to be removed.
Homework is sent out every Friday and is due back in school on the following Wednesday.
Please ensure your child reads at home daily, as this is vital for developing their comprehension skills, widening their vocabulary and supporting them with their writing. Children who read more than three times per weekly, will gain extra playtime as a reward. We also have a prize book draw at the end of each term.
During each new big term, a topic-based homework project is set; this allows you to get creative at home with your child!
If your child is struggling with any aspect of their homework, we are always available to support them: they just need to ask.
Topic Homework – Groovy Greeks.
This term we will be looking back to ancient Greece. I am not sure how much grooving the Greeks actually did but they were known for their philosophising, inventing and building. They also fought a lot, against each other or invading Persians!
Your options for your topic homework are as follows:
- Build a model of a Greek temple (think about how you will make all those columns)
- Write a non-chronological report about famous ancient Greeks
- Draw a picture of a creature from a Greek myth (The Minotaur, cyclops or Pegasus for example)
- Research The Iliad and Odyssey. Who wrote them and what were they about?
Topic homework is due in by Monday 24th May
