Happy New Year and welcome back to the Spring Term. We are looking forward to the new term ahead and hope you are too!
Our History topic this term is Ancient Egypt. This is an exciting topic with lots to learn. We will be learning about how they lived as well as their rituals when they died. We will learn about their key achievements that have impacted our lives today. In Art, we will be making 3D Canopic Jars using clay.
In Guided Reading, to link with our History topic, we will be reading ‘The Ancient Egypt Sleepover’ by Stephen Davies. After half-term, we will be reading ‘The Strongest Girl in the World’ by Sally Gardner.
In our English lessons, our first text will be ‘The True Story of the Three Little Pigs’. We will use this to learn how to write newspaper recounts. We will then learn about different syllable poetry such as tankas and cinquains. Our final text of the term will be a narrative called ‘Walk with a Wolf’.
In Maths, we will continue learning about multiplication and division. We will learn about money and length and then start to learn about fractions.
Your homework will continue to be; reading at least three times a week, practising your times tables using Times Tables Rockstars and learning your weekly spellings.
Don’t forget to make sure you wear the correct PE kit to school on your PE days. This term we will be doing Dance and Gymnastics in the Hall. The PE kit is red school jumper, white polo shirt, black shorts or black jogging bottoms with trainers.
Your PE days are:
- Ruby – Wednesday and Friday
- Scarlet – Wednesday and Friday
We are all excited for the new term ahead and hope you are too.
