Welcome to

Whissendine CE Primary School

Term 5

Where in the World?


It’s all Greek to Team 6…  This term our learning is very much driven by a Geographical focus: to begin with, we will investigate geographical patterns (geographic zones) and then we will investigate and communicate all that is physical and human about Greece.  In Art, we will develop our skills in sculpture when we take inspiration from Ancient Greek vases but add a 21st Century twist to them.  Science will see us classifying Greek living things into the five Kingdoms as well as learning all about a leading Greek philosopher and scientist that first classified living things. 


We have already started this term’s eating fest with our sparkling start.  In addition to making their Greek-inspired pittas, the Team tried a variety of Greek delights and the food will not stop there…  In DT, we will be designing and making an ‘on-the-go’ Greek snack.  Watch out for some nifty dance routines later in the term (obviously inspired by a very famous Greek dance).


The team have a lot to look forward to this term:  script writing for the Team 5/6 production and, of course, their end of KS2 SATs.  These tests run for one week, commencing Monday 9th May.  It will be really important that there are early nights so we’re refreshed each day, nutritious breakfasts eaten so that our brains are well-prepared for the day ahead and lots of chill-out time in-between so that we’re totally relaxed.  This is an important time in the academic year for Year 6 pupils but I am completely convinced that they are all ready to shine and ready to show everyone just how brilliant they are.


P.E. continues to be on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Homework continues to be handed out on Mondays and Fridays.

You know where I am if you have any questions or concerns and, if I’m not in the classroom, please leave a message with one of the other adults.


Thank you.

Mrs Schofield, Mrs Fry and Mrs Redmond.
