Dear Parents and carers,
Happy New Year! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break, despite the restrictions, I hope you were able to spend some quality time as a family.
For those who are not going to be in school over the next couple weeks, here are the things we will be covering.
Maths - we will be looking at both long and short division. Using times tables and written methods to help us get to the answers. We will also be doing lots of problem solving and reasoning within division. If you would like some assistance in this area you can visit one of the following websites: www.nrich.maths.org or www.mathsbot.com in addition to these websites, you can also go onto your mymaths, where there are several tutorials and avenues to help with division.
English - In English we will be looking at a character profile over the next 2 weeks. We will delving deeper into how to create a character for a story. Below I have attached a quick power point to what needs to be included within character profile. The character profile will be based on Ancient Greek myths. Therefore, you might have to do some research on some of the the Greek mythology characters.
Reading - we will be reading and basing all of our work around the Greek Myth Theseus and the Minotaur.
Topic - Ancient Greeks - we will be looking at where Greece is and locating this on a map. We will also be looking at the Gods and Goddesses from Ancient Greek times.
Science - we will be working on properties and changing materials. There are lots of resources if you google this subject and put KS2 at the end of your search.
I hope this helps and all the best!
