We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can. As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so. We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.
This year we will be studying a range of different topics. In this term we will be working through Tribal Tales!
Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen?
Head back to prehistoric times (it’s a long time ago) to gather berries and hunt down dinner. Unearth ancient objects and visit astonishing mystical monuments that reveal the secrets of an ancient time.
Learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years, from the Stone Age to the Roman invasion.
Work as a tribe to build a seasonal monument to celebrate the coming of spring. Then sit quietly and reflect, waiting for the sunrise.
