Some PE sessions will take place outside unless there are extreme weather conditions i.e. ice, snow or heavy rain.

Homework:

Home learning menus are given out at the start of every half term highlighting activities and projects the children can complete based on their current topic.

 

Each half term, children will be encouraged to complete homework from a 'homework menu' from their class teacher. This will be a range of activities relating to their current topic that parents can complete with their children.

 

Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by sharing them with the year group's Twitter page. 

 

Topics covered:

Summer 2

Enterprise

 

This half term we will be pretending to be on The Apprentice impressing Lord Sugar. As a year group, we will be creating a project which will make millions- we hope! The children will take ownership of this project from initial ideas to completion. Furthermore, we will develop a marketing campaign to increase our brand image, before selling to the whole school at an end of year jamboree.
