In English we will be focusing on journey tales and writing persuasive leaflets. All of our writing will link to our topic of Ancient Egypt. We will be using the talk 4 writing process to explore our next book. We will use drama to explore features and characters.

SPAG: Figurative language (including similes, onomatopoeia and expanded noun phrases), possessive apostrophe (with singular and plural nouns), using coordination, subordination and adding suffixes and prefixes.

Maths

During this half term we will be exploring addition & subtraction. We will also tackle a wide range of problem solving and reasoning questions throughout all aspects of math.

We will be working on our times tables during daily focused sessions. We will do this through a range of games and songs. Times tables will also be sent home to practise each week.

Science

Our focus in science will be looking at sound. We will be looking at questions such as ‘why do different materials create different sounds?’

Topic

Our class topic for this half term is Ancient Egypt. We will be learning all about the ancient civilisation and exploring questions such as ‘why were the Egyptians so fascinated with the dead?’

R.E.

Children will be exploring Islam and comparing this to Christianity during RE lessons in autumn term.

Spanish

During Spanish we will be learning colours, counting to 20 and about us and our families

Reminders

P.E will take place on Wednesdays, however please ensure that P.E kits are in school all week as we will also have a second lesson which will vary week to week.

Homework will be given out every Friday and is due back the following Tuesday. This will consist of times tables practise and children will complete a times tables test each Tuesday. Handwriting practise or spellings may also be given.

Reading at home will form the other part of homework. We are encouraging children to read at home as much as possible and will be checking their reading records daily, so please make sure these are in school every day and are signed each time your child reads at home. These will then be counted and contribute towards their 100 Reads.

All children have login details for two fantastic maths resources and should seek to regularly access these at home.

Thank you very much for visiting our page and please do not hesitate to come and see me with if you have any questions.

Many thanks, Mrs L Roberts.
