We had a very informative half term learning all about the Stone Age. We learnt loads and had a brilliant end of topic trip in November.
This term we look forward to learning about the Ancient Egyptians.
We are starting off the term creating Ancient Egyptian shape poetry. Then we are going to discover an Ancient Egyptian diary. We will be pretending that we are Egyptian archaeologists and writing about an exciting day in our life. We will move on to writing an Egyptian story.
We will start the term learning about place value. We will be working with three digit numbers. Please continue to use timestable rockstars and mathletics at home. (Keep up to date with homework on the homework page.)
In active read, we will be reading, 'Egyptian Cinderella,' and another mystery book. We will continue to look at understanding the text, any new vocabulary and in particular inference: 'reading between the lines.'
We will constantly be reading as a class through active read sessions, comprehension lessons, independent reading and reading to the teacher (usually every two weeks - this is recorded in your children's jotter.)
We encourage your child also to select texts of interest to them to bring into school and to choose books from their class library.
Children should be completing quizzes when they have completed a book and this will assess their understanding of the text.
In History, we will be learning what life was like for the Ancient Egyptians. We will be exploring Egypt as a country and all the different landmarks both Ancient and current in Geography. In DT, we will be designing and making a shaduf for 21st century Britain. We will be learning about forces and magnets in Science and applying this knowledge to our shadufs.
Your child should have a school P.E kit in school every day- including socks and appropriate footwear for sport. Trainers are recommended for games and athletic activities. Plimsolls or barefoot are generally best for indoor activity. P.E days this half term are Monday and Friday. We remind you that no earrings should be worn on those days.
We will be beginning lessons with invasion games : netball skills and outdoor and adventurous activities which may include teambuilding, orienteering, team and individual challenges and growth mindset.
If you have any questions or concerns please come to see us.
