Spring Topic activities at home
Our topic this half term is all about Egyptians! We always welcome children doing extra learning about our current topic at home. If you create anything or do any extra research, we would love to see it in school. You might want to research the pyramids and make your own replica. Or you might find out facts about the tombs and mummies and try to make a model. Anything brought in will be shared with the class and displayed.
Regular home activities
Please read with your child everyday and ask them questions to consolidate their understanding. There is also ‘spelling frame’ and ‘TT rock stars’ to be used regularly at home to consolidate learning in class. If you cannot access these, please inform your child's teacher. Children will have spelling activities to complete each week in a spelling book if access to spelling frame is not working. We are currently learning the 3, 4 and 9 times table in school. We would love to see some of the games you play at home to support the children in learning these facts.
Reminder: PE kit
The children are to come to school in their PE kit which consists of a plain white t-shirt, dark shorts/jogging bottoms, trainers and a plain black or blue hoodie for outdoor activities. PE days are on Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child is able to tie their shoe laces.
Themes & Topics
During the Autumn Term, we will travel back in time to the Stone Age for our topic ‘Meet the Flintstones’.
Children will use a range of sources, including archaeology, to establish an understanding of British history. They will be look at early settlements and how people used to live. There will be opportunities to explore the art of weaving.
‘Tomb Raiders’ is our topic for the Spring Term.
The children will travel (virtually) on the river Nile to find out why it has been so valuable to the Egyptians. They will be use atlases and maps and develop their geographical vocabulary. They will use a variety of resources, including the internet, to answer their questions, and they will create a moveable mummy.
Our Summer Term topic is ‘Rotten Romans'.
