Our learning this term:
In English we will be learning a text titled Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo. The children will learn how to act out the text using expression and progress towards using a variety of punctuation and descriptive vocabulary within their writing. The writing outcome for this unit will be to write an action paragraph.
In Maths, the children will be learning place value up to 1000, adding and subtracting amounts. The children will continue to revise the 2, 5, 10 times tables and will begin to familiarise themselves with the 4 and 8 times tables.
In Science, we will be exploring what a force is. We will investigate and compare how different things move on different surfaces. We will also be researching about the pioneering scientist Galileo.
In R.E we will be studying the unit, 'Called by God.' We will be reflecting on what it means to be called by God and the responses people have made to that call.
We will be learning about the achievements of the earliest civilisations, ancient Egyptians. We will make comparisons with leisure and entertainment and compare Tutankhamun with the Queen.
We will use geographical terms to locate Egypt on a world map.

Home reading books will be changed every Monday and Friday. This will allow us to quarantine them before they are returned into the communal areas. Please do listen to your child read every day and sign their reading records.
Each class has been timetabled to use the library in school. Your child will be allowed to borrow two books until their next visit. We will message you via the school message app to notify you of the dates.

All you need to know about PE!
Your child will take part in PE on the following days:
Lime class - Monday and Thursday

Your child can come into school dressed in their PE kit on their PE days. Children will not be allowed to get changed in school. Please remember that your child can wear their normal PE top, jogging bottoms (black or red), school jumper and school shoes. Pumps should already be in school and will remain in school until the end of the year. If your child does not have any jogging bottoms, please don't go out to buy any, it is okay for them to wear their school trousers.
