Welcome to the last half of the Summer Term!  We will continue to work on our production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream ready for our performance on June 17th.  We will also be working on our Verse Vs Verse poems, which will be performed to the school. The winning teams will perform at the Criterian Theatre in the West End, supported by their teachers and classmates. Our focus in Science will  be 'Reproduction in Plants and Animals' and we will be looking at Biomes in Project. We also have various themed weeks to look forward to, for example Arts Week and Sports & Fitness Week. 
If you have a question please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher, and thanks for your continued support.
