P.E - Monday (indoor) Tuesday (outdoor)
R.E - Friendship value and Christianity: The Kingdom of God (What will we imagine the Kingdom of God to be? How has it been represented in history and what does the Kingdom of God mean to me?)
The spellings for each week will consist of 18 words: 6 for each level (bronze, silver and gold). The children need to pick a level in which to aim for that week; this will help to encourage indpedendent learning. The children need to get all 6 spellings correct in each level in order to obtain a bronze, silver or gold award for the week. The help sheet is attached in order to provide helpful guidance when practising spellings at home.
This year, in preparation for next year, there will be a small piece of Maths and English homework to complete each night. All children should aim to have a go as the maths will focus on the basic skills of adding, subtracting, multiplication and division with an optional extension. Children should aim to accomplish as much as they can; if there are any problems that arise, do not hesitate to contact me via Dojo or with a comment in their homework book.

Who's the Mummy? A study of the Ancient Egyptians
Have you ever wondered who built the pyramids? How many children Ramses II had? Who Tutankhamun was? This is the Topic where you will use all your research skills to find out.
We will be developing a range of skills this Topic to help find out the answers to this questions, including:
  • Summarising skills to help us navigate the internet
  • Map reading skills to locate the Nile and its tributaries
  • Our decoding skills to uncover the secrets of those sneaky hieroglyphics
  • Our D.T skills to help design a sarcophagus fit for a Pharoah (we will be working towards a Weighing of the Heart ceremony).
Did you know before becoming a Mummy, the brain used to be pulled out through the nose!?
Science: Animals including Humans
This term we will be looking at all animals including humans. To fit in with out Ancient Egyptian topic, we will locate all the main organs of the body and understand the functions of these. We will also understand the functions of the heart and the circulatory system. We will learn what medication does to our body and why some people benefit from the physical effects this has on the body. We will also be understanding the fundamental differences between animals and humans - are there any differences? Have a think! :)
