RE

Our topic this half term is 'What does it mean to be a Buddhist? Can we be enlightened?'

Take a look at this BBC Bitesize website, where there are learner guides and documents giving lots of information. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zh4mrj6

 

Then as a challenge, answer the topic question in any way you wish. This could be in the form of a written answer, or through drawings, video or any other creative idea you have! 

 

Music

Here's some work from Mr Ecclestone, linking with our topic from last half term.

PE day: Friday

Children should have both indoor and outdoor kit in school all the time, as during bad weather we may be able to have PE indoors. For PE lessons, it is important that all jewellery be removed and long hair tied back.

 

Reading

Sycamore class have already developed a love of reading for pleasure and it would be wonderful to embrace this at home as well, listening to children read and discussing their favourite texts. Also, please ensure that children have their Reading Records in school each day.

 

Water and Snacks

Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school and fruit for snacks. 

Spring 2: How much plastic do we eat in a year?

Spring 1: Would I have survived the journey to Antarctica?

Autumn 2: What impact has the Shang Dynasty had on modern China?

Autumn 1: Why did they have to 'Keep Calm and Carry On?'
