What are we learning?

In English…

Currently, we are reading, ‘Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo and ‘So you think you’ve got it bad?’ by Chae Strathie. Using these texts we will be writing an explanation text on the process of making a mummy. We will be looking at the different features of an explanation text and discussing the technical vocabulary we will use.

In Maths…

We are always consolidating prior knowledge. Our unit this half term is time. We will also be looking at addition and subtraction using column method. As always, times tables are an important part of fluency. Why not have a weekly session on TT Rockstars?

In Science…

Our unit this term is ‘Animals Including Humans’. We will be learning about different food groups, skeletons and the names of the bones in the body. We will also look at the muscles in the body and observe the muscles we use when exercising.

In RE…

This term we will be looking at the topic harvest. We will be learning how different religions celebrate harvest and discuss the importance of crops growing. We will explore the importance of being thankful and will share what we are thankful for.

In Topic…

We are learning about Ancient Egypt. We will be looking at the different rulers of Egypt, the pyramids and mummification. We have also created our own timeline so we remember how long ago the pyramids were built.
