The children will be looking at World War two, the main figures involved, how Britain was affected and how it was celebrated in Britain.
In Geography the children will be learning about Manchester and doing a local study. We will be in contact with another primary school in Manchester and compare where we live and they live.
We will be using the ICT suite and the laptops in class to look at how to be safe on the internet. As well as this the children will be looking at how to code and debug programmes.

Homework will continue to be given every Friday and collected in for marking on the following Tuesday. Children will be working on their chosen topic project to be handed in at the end of term 5. Homework should take approximately 20 minutes to complete for term 5 and children decide how much they add to their project. In term 6 the homework will resume to normal. They will also have spellings to learn on a regular basis.
P.E. will be on Monday and games will be Friday as before. Please ensure your children have the appropriate kit on these days. Please ensure long hair is tied back and earrings are removed or covered.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me.
Thanking you for your support,
Miss M. Savage
