Hello, welcome to Class 4.
This term our topic is Egypt. This is a fascinated area of history with lots to learn – we will be looking at hieroglyphs, Egyptian Pharaohs, mummification, unearthing Tutankhamen’s tomb including the (alleged) curse, life in Ancient Egypt and the importance of the Nile.
This term’s knowledge organiser has a link at the bottom of this page.
Class 4 has PE on Thursday mornings. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit (white shirt, black shorts / swimming kit) including appropriate footwear and does not wear earrings to school on these days. Year 5 children also have Mini Marines on a Monday afternoon and will need warm and comfortable outdoor-wear for that.
Daily reading with your child is essential for their progress. Children are encouraged to read aloud to an adult as often as possible, please listen to them read, ask questions and put a small note in their reading record. Reading Records are checked at least every other day and children can change books daily as often as they read them.
Every Monday children will get at least one piece of homework. This needs to be completed by the following Monday. Children will also need to be practising their times tables as often as possible. We will be playing plenty of multiplication shootout in class to practice!
