Welcome to Term 2!
This term we shall be exploring the themes and ideas within the book, “There’s a Boy in The Girls’ Bathroom” by Louis Sachar. Set in America, we will be focusing a lot of our work on both the Geography and History of America: from exploring the physical and human Geography of the USA, as well as its links to Britain and how it became the United States of America that we recognise today. The plot of the book also will allow us to deal with many aspects of mental health: from the way we present ourselves, dealing with emotions and our friendships.
Our PE day will be a Monday afternoon with the Sports Coach. Please arrive in your PE clothes and trainers (tracksuit bottoms are acceptable) and make sure your earrings are out ready for the lesson. Our library day will remain a Thursday and so our Busters Book Club is still a Wednesday (remember our target is only 20 minutes of reading!)
As always, you can complete a topic-related project at home if you wish. This, however, is not compulsory as there will be obligatory alternating Maths and English homework sent home on a Monday which will need to be handed in on the following Monday.
