Term 5

 

Welcome back!

We hope that you have enjoyed a wonderful Easter holiday safely with your families.

Our new topic this time is:       Ancient Egypt!

Thank you for the amazing homework that has been brought into school.

History

We will be exploring how Egypt was lead by Pharaohs and compare this with what we have learned about Roman and their ruling system.

We will look at the importance of religion to the Egyptians.  We will explore The Valley of The Kings and what it tells us about how important people were prepared and buried. We will study artefacts which tell us about how the Egyptians lived. We will compare Tutankhamen with other important leaders in history like Boudicca.

During our geography sessions we will compare the landscape of Egypt with other countries that we have studied - Italy and England. We will discuss the importance of the River Nile.

Literacy - reading and writing

We are continuing to read The Demon Dentist by David Walliams as part of our whole class reading. Click below top open a PDF of the story.

We are also reading The Egyptian Cinderella which will help us to write our own traditional tale. Click below for a link to the story.

Spellings will be given out weekly, we will be tackling the list of year 3/4 words, topic words and words that have come up in our writing that we need to remember. Try to practice them daily, using the look, say, cover , write and check strategy.

Numeracy

Times tables tests take place once a week. We are celebrating success in our virtual sharing assembly with Ms Carbon. Please practice your timetable on purple mash.

We continue to do 15 minutes of Fluent in 5 which helps us to remember some of our previous learning, keeping it 'on the boil'

Our focus for the first part of term is decimals. Below is our content intent.
