This term we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians. Below is the curriculum newsletter
Our class book will also be linked to the Ancient Egyptians it is called The story of Tutankhamun by Patricia Cleveland -Peck.
This term we have started Spanish lessons. The class have been enjoying some phrases... ¿Cómo te llamas?
(What's your name?) you can reply with... Me llamas ...... (my name is...)
The class have been pretending to be archaeologist and finding artefacts from the Ancient Egyptian times. They had great fun finding different items, asking questions about them and predicting how they link to our new class book.
Hello Cedar class. You have settled in really well in class even with all the new changes - what a brilliant start. We are very proud at the way you have adapted to the new changes and have all shown great consideration and maturity.
P.E is on Tuesdays.
Due to current guidance please send your child into school in their PE kit. They can wear, joggers/shorts, t-shirt/school jumper, trainers/daps. They will still have outdoor play times so please make sure they are warm enough.
In term 2 we we will be finding out more about South America in our Geography topic.
We have started to read the class book... Wolves in the walls by Neil Gainman. The class made some brilliant predictions about the book. We are still in the middle of reading the book, but the class have written some great diary and letter writing and even some brilliant wolves descriptions.
Spellings overview below. Please support your child to learn them.
You worked really well predicting what the new class book could be from using the clues/ images. This term in English we will be doing lots of work using the class book called Rain Player by David Wisniewski. Our text links to our new topic for the term - the ancient Mayans.
In topic we will be learning about how the Maya people lived, food, inventions, their beliefs and creating art work based on the Mayans.
We are working really hard on our times tables this year. Year 4’s will have a times table assessment in the Summer term. It's important that they know their time tables up to 12x12 please practice at home.
