Welcome back Sphinx Class!


 I hope you have all enjoyed your half term and are ready for the run up to Christmas!


Our next topic is: 'Mexico and The Mayans'.


We will be learning about Mexico, where in the world it is, what it's like there and any similarities/differences there are with Britain. This term we will be making 'God's Eyes', making and tasting food and designing our own 'Day of the Dead' masks. 


Take a look at the Topic overview to find out more!


PE will be held every Wednesday, so please ensure you have your kit in school. You should have shorts, t-shirt and daps/trainers as well as a tracksuit if you have PE outside. Remember, you will be completing the daily mile so you may feel more comfortable doing this in appropriate footwear. I recommend you keep your kit in school all week and take it home each Friday, especially as you will be having dance on a Friday morning with Mr Bagley. Also this term we will be going swimming on a Thursday afternoon.


Don't forget you will be learning the trumpet, this is a brilliant opportunity to learn an instrument so don't forget to practise - hopefully trumpets will be coming home after the first lesson of the term.


I am really looking forward to seeing you all on Monday and teaching you again this term.


Miss Dickson
