Hello and Welcome to the Squirrel Class!
The Squirrels are taught by Miss Lineker and their Teaching Assistant is Mrs Pepperdine, however other adults in school will be working in the class throughout the year too.
Our topic in Term 2 shall be all about Crime and Punishment. Our overarching question for this term shall be "How has Crime and Punishment changed over the last 1000 years?" During this topic, we shall explore the last 1000 years of historical chronology, learning stories about criminals and how they have been dealt with in different periods of time. We shall hold many informed debates relating to issues in the present day where possible and we shall even explore how crime and punishment has evolved in Boston and Lincolnshire with some exciting visits planned to some amazing historical buildings. Keep popping back to see where our learning journey takes us...
Please remember, swimming shall continue every Wednesday afternoon and Outdoor P.E will usually be on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that P.E kits are in school every Thursday. In case of a change to the timetable, it would be helpful for all children to have their P.E. kit in school all week, if possible, with warmer clothes to wear in the winter months!
Homework will be sent home every Monday and should be returned to school by Friday at the latest. In Year Five, we encourage children to develop their independence skills. If they should have a problem with their homework, please remind them to come and speak to me about it. I will happily support them wherever I can!
