Meet Our Team
I hope you have had a nice week off school. I am looking forward to hearing all about the things you have been up to! Thank you for working so hard last half term, I am really excited to start our new topic, I think you are going to love it!
In English this half term we will be writing a chronological report about the discovery of Tutankhamun’s Tomb. We will also be writing a diary entry from the perspective of Howard Carter. You may wish to get ahead by researching who these people are!
In Maths, we will be focussing on multiplication to begin with moving onto fractions, decimals and percentages later on in the half term.
Our topic this half term is Ancient Egypt. I know some of you are already really excited about this and are eager to begin learning so we will start our topic by plunging straight in and finding out all about life in Ancient Egypt. I look forward to seeing any extra homework you complete from our little book of things to do at home!
Welcome back, I hope you have had a fantastic summer break and made plenty of time to relax! Now we are back it is time for the hard work to start!
We will begin the term with a focus on Citizenship. We will be reading ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl and using his story to create our own dreams based on our aspirations for the future.
Following this we will make a start to my favourite topic ‘Earth and Space’, all of our Science will link to this too, can you think of some questions you may have about Earth and Space which we could investigate in class?
In English, we will be writing a newspaper report following the 1969 moon landing. We will be writing some short stories based on science fiction, creating fact files and writing poetry linked to space.
In Art we will be looking at the artist Peter Thorpe and his work and create some of our own based on this.
This half term during our Maths lessons we will be revisiting the basics of place value, addition and subtraction.
