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.

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 their performance of Macbeth! 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!

PE sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday.

Long term planning: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ehozj7aE0fAdat51kjRebaF5FKUf3v3bQpT5rlikgaY/
