St Matthew's CE Primary School

Faith • Respect • Achievement • Friendship


In Beech class we keep going when learning is tough, and learn from our mistakes.

This half term we are continuing to study the Ancient Greeks. The children will explore why Ancient Greece has had such a long and dramatic legacy as well as working as history detectives to piece together the fragments from the past. Not only does it provide ample opportunities to explore contemporary issues to do with democracy, rights and freedoms, it also allows the children to explore a society very different from their own.

The children will be studying ‘The Tales of Odysseus’ in English, writing a continuation of the tales with Odysseus facing a new mythical creature.  

In science we have been learning about earth and space, following our recent trip to the INTECH Science centre in Winchester. This was a fantastic day – please see the photo gallery on this website.

In maths, the children will be looking at solving more complicated problems, considering the best/ most efficient way to tackle. The children will be developing their understanding of algebra. We will also be revising content from the Year 6 curriculum as we approach an important period in Year 6. All children have been given a SATs revision book to help them revise their maths at home.
