This term, we will be finding out about Ancient Maya in Topic; Evolution and Inheritance in science and Buddhism and ‘What happens when we die?’ in RE. In English, we will be studying a book called and then ‘The Storm Keeper’s Island’ and we will be exploring lots of genres of writing through this text. In Maths, we will be focusing on decimals, percentages, algebra, measurement, ratio, geometry and statistics. Please note there will be a big push on preparing for the Year 6 SATs in reading, writing and maths.

Please do not hesitate to contact usvia the office or in person after school if you need to speak to us about anything.

Black handwriting pens (NO biros please)
