Our topic this term is Ancient Egyptians. We will answer questions such as Who was Tutankhamun? What did Howard Carter do? Where the Egyptians more advanced than we are? We will use a range of evidence to help us to build our chronological understanding; knowledge and interpretation; and historical enquiry skills. What a fascinating subject!
This term our class book is called 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl. See our newsletter for more information.
Keep using your Rock Star Maths login to help your child to practise their times tables on-line at home.
A sample of their class tables work will come home on a Tuesday so that you can see which times table they are currently working on in school.
Talk about Maths!
Encourage your child to talk about the numbers around them: "What time it it?" "How long do you think it will take us to walk to ...?" "How tall is that building?" "How much is the shopping?"
Reasoning about statistics. What do you think?
Spellings are tested on a Monday. Please keep supporting your child in using a range of methods to practise these at home. Find out what works best for them.
Have a look at what we have been up to in and out of class...
We looked at the Genesis story of Creation for RE and sang Louis Armstrong's 'What a wonderful world'.
