Below, I have attached some powerpoint presentations all about Greece, democracy, the Olympics and Greek Gods and Goddesses. if you would like to take a look?

Why not have a read together?

 

Here are a list of home learning ideas to help engage the children in our new topic:

English

In English this half term our focus book is 'The Tin Forest'. This is a fantastic book and the children have so far been very engaged. Using this text as a base for writing we have been writing diary entries, setting descriptions, character descriptions and instructions. In doing this we have been identifying and applying certain aspects of grammar and punctuation, such as adverbs, fronted adverbials, prepositions, conjunctions and punctuating direct speech. 

Images of our wonderful Tin Forest display are to follow.

Have a look at this interactive clip of the story:

Maths

This half term, we have been looking at developing a combination of mathamatical skills. This includes finding mental and written methods of addition and subtraction as well as multiplication and division. 

With this in mind children need to become increadingly familiar with their times tables in order to speed up mental learning strategies. 

Below are some recommended interactive games geered to supporting this development:
