 Spring Term 2020

Welcome back!

Happy New Year 2020!

This term promises to be an exciting and busy one as we start our brand new topic theme - THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS!

This is a History based topic theme, focussing on life in Ancient Egypt, farming, beliefs of the gods, mummification and the explorers who made discoveries such as Tutankhamun.

In English, we will continue to develop our skills in active reading, sharing a text and analysing together, retrieving information, explaining and justifying author's choice of words. This term we will look at Operation Gadgetman by Malorie Blackman.

For writing, we will revisit Traditional Tales but this time with a twist as we consider the story told from another viewpoint. We will also use the IPEELL structure to help us with writing reports.

In Maths, we will focus on multiplication and division to start with, moving on from times tables to multiplying a two digit by a one digit number. We will also begin to look at money, spending, totalling and calculating change in both £ and pence. We will also look at data collection and statistics - interpreting bar charts, pictograms and tables.

RE will focus on being a disciple in 'Who Do I Follow?'

In Geography we will look at the role of the Nile River for transport, irrigation and farming.

In Science, in Biology, we will consider the needs of animals and humans, movement and stucture using a skeleton.

Art and DT link closely to our topic theme - printing Egyptian motifs using pressprint techniques and constructing an Egyptian SHADUF mechanism to lift water or stone blocks.

In PE we will be continuing with our swimming lessons - this will take place each Wednesday. 

Here's hoping for a fabulous Spring Term - Enjoy!
