TERM 5 and TERM 6

Hello and welcome from Mrs Rothberg and Mrs Russell.  We hope you all enjoyed the Easter holidays and enjoyed some chocolate eggs! We are both very excited and looking forward to getting to know you all properly and moving forward with your learning. 

The children were very excited to walk in on the first day to find out that our new topic will be the Ancient Egyptians for Terms 5 and 6. They surprised us with some interesting facts about the mummification process and how the pyramids were built. They are very excited to learn more! 

In English, we will be studying a spy book by Elizabeth Singer Hunt: 'The Mission to Find Max' and have already read about the spy gadgets.   Our Art and DT work will be linked to our topic and we hope to draw a self-portrait in the style of a Pharaoh.  

We have started the term studying fractions in Maths and will move onto money.   We will of course continue to learn more of our times tables and the core skills needed with the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

In Science we will be studying States of Matter - solids, liquids and gases.  We hope to explore this topic through our investigative work in order to learn as many facts as we can about these three states and how they can change.  

In PE we will be starting a scheme of work on Athletics each Thursday with Mr Heath. As we head on towards the final term, we will be practising our racket and bat skills in tennis, cricket and rounders.  
We are having a big push on reading in class so please bring in your reading book and contact book each day, even if you haven’t finished it.

Home Learning continues to be sent home each Friday and there is an expectation that every child practices their times tables.
