Hakuna Matata

In year 5 and 6, we’ve got no worries about our first topic- HAKUNA MATATA! Focusing on the text by Beverley Naidoo, ‘The Other Side of the Truth’, we will be exploring issues brought about by war and conflict and the impact these can have on people’s lives. ‘Crime and punishment’ and ‘Freedom’ will be significant themes in our work and in science is going to be wild!

This will be available on the blog each week. The homework will consist of one piece of maths and a piece of SPaG (Year 6).

Spellings and times tables will also be tested weekly.
