Autumn 1 - Where's my Mummy?


Welcome back Team Sputnik!

It is fantastic to finally all be back in school together J. This half term our topic is ‘Where’s my Mummy?’ where we will be learning about all things Ancient Egyptians.

In English we will be working on developing our writing skills through descriptive writing and retelling the story of Tutankhamun, as well as Diary entries. We will be working on our spoken language through writing and reciting poetry to the class. As always we will be completing our daily Bookflix, applying our skills to analyse and understand texts, more details of the Bookflix skills can be found here

In Maths we are focusing on recapping and further developing our place value knowledge. Learning to identify the place value of digits to 1000. We will be developing our mental Math’s skills and times table knowledge through daily practice.

In Topic we will be developing our use of subject terminology through researching and learning key words linked to Ancient Egypt. We will also be studying how they lived, making comparisons to our way of life. We will begin to look at reliable sources of information, looking at Primary and Secondary sources. We will be learning about the building of the Pyramids as well as the laws of the Pharaohs. We will be applying our learning about Egyptians uses of colours to symbolise different things to create art work.

Although you are not able to come in and see your children’s work around school, we will share as much learning as we can with you over here so you can see all the wonderful things we get up to! :)
