Welcome to Class 4
Miss Allan, Mrs Fisher, Mrs Mutch and Mrs Richards help us in our class.
This half term's topic is:
We will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We will be thinking about what it would have been like to live in Egypt during that time. We will be learning all about the gruesome mummification process, canopic jars, Egyptian mythology and King Tutankhamun, as well as many more interesting areas of this civilisation.
We are here to work with you to help your child achieve the best they can. You are very welcome to come and talk to us at the beginning or end of the day.
This half term...
Children will be focusing on multiplication and visual representations we can use to help us understand worded questions, equivalent fractions, and their equivalent decimals, fractions of quantities, time including telling the time and worded questions involving time, and coordinates. On top of our main maths lessons we will continue to practice our times tables frequently which will be tested on Thursdays.
We will continue to do daily guided reading, handwriting and spellings every week. Please try and listen to your children read at home and sign their diary so we know this is happening regularly. We will also be spending time writing a story linked to a book we will be looking at in class, we will be writing a newspaper article linked to the same book, and we will be writing a winter poem.
This half term we will be looking at sound. We will learn about the parts of the ear, vibrations, pitch and loudness and soundproofing.
All other subjects will be taught through our topic 'Awesome Egypt' in a fun, cross-curricular way!
We went to the Manchester Museum on Friday 1st December to take part in an Ancient Egyptian workshop. We loved meeting the mummy Azru!
We went on a super trip to 'One Adventure' in Droylsden on 24th October 2017. We took part in 3 activities, laser tag, night line, and archery. We had such a great time together.
Our learning log winners for this week, 30th November 2017, are Ellis and Harry! Well done!
