Our theme this term is:

'Tomb Raiders'

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.

Outdoor Learning

Sycamore Class are extremely lucky and are beginning the year, every Wednesday morning, with an Outdoor Learning session with Mrs Bacon. Please ensure that children have suitable clothing each week for their Outdoor Learning sessions, including wellies, to enable them to make the most of all of the learning opportunities during these sessions.


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.

Remember to check the class website for ideas and activities linked to our class topic too.
