Our theme this term is:
In terms 1 and 2 we are going to be exploring the history of Ancient Egypt. Throughout this topic the children will explore life as an ancient Egyptian and make links and comparisons to modern day Egypt and England. We will explore how culture and religion affected society as well as traditions and beliefs. The children will be encouraged to ask questions and research answers and will be able to collect information and evidence from a variety of sources. In term 1, we will also explore Ancient Egypt during our Guided Reading sessions as we begin to develop our research and fact retrieval skills to help us learn some interesting facts about Ancient Egyptian daily life.
Please make sure full PE kits are in school as well as wellies. Our first PE sessions is the first day of term!
Remember to bring in a named water bottle for use in class. Please bring a coat everyday, English weather is very unpredictable. Remember to name ALL your belongings.
DOJOs- Please sign up to Class Dojo, if you have not already, so you can keep up to date with class information, reminders and share great news! As well as keep track of DOJO points awarded!
We are expecting you to read 5 times at week at home. Remember, reading doesn't just have to be sat down with a reading book, you could read a recipe, a newspaper, a magazine or I would love to hear what interesting facts you can find out about Ancient Egypt!
Spellings will be set every Monday and will be tested the following Monday. This gives you exactly a week to learn your spellings at home.
