Welcome back! Many thanks for all the positive comments over parents evening; it was good to hear how much the children enjoyed our Evolution topic and how much they talked about their learning at home. We particularly enjoyed our trip to the Museum of Zoology and our DNA day – many thanks to all the adults who helped.

This half term we will be looking at the life and times of Mr William Shakespeare, acting out plays and writing biographies. Our main impetus will come from the Young Shakespeare Company and there performance of Macbeth on Tuesday 15th October – please note that this will finish at 3.30! This will then start our English work: re-tellings of the story and drama based upon specific scenes, followed by reading and writing biographies of Shakespeare.

We are planning to link our Geography into this topic by looking at the human and physical geography of Scotland. We will continue our music sessions with Mr Ecclestone, and our outdoor PE will be tag rugby, please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school!

Violet PE sessions are on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Lilac PE sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday.
