This term, we will be learning all about Ancient Egypt. Already this term, we have looked at the key events of this time period, such as the building of the Great Pyramids. Throughout this theme, we will be learning about the importance of the River Nile, mummification, how Ancient Egyptians lived and so much more.
Key Information
 
PE
Cedar Class will continue to have their PE lessons on a Tuesday and ThursdayChildren are encouraged to have their PE kits in school throughout the week. Should a PE lesson be cancelled due to adverse weather the teacher will try to find another slot during the week, if all children have their kit in school during the week and this happens, nobody will be left out. 
 
Homework
Homework is sent home on a FRIDAY afternoon. This will continue to consist of the week's spelling pattern, an English task and a Maths activity. Homework is expected back in school by the following WEDNESDAY, meaning that the teacher has an opportunity to provide feedback to the children. Should there e any issues, children are encouraged to see their class teacher before Wednesday to access any support required. 
 
Reading
Reading Records will continue to be monitored on a daily basis. Children are expected to be reading at home at least 3 times per week to support their learning in school. The week's reading will be added up each Friday morning and children who have managed to read 3 times per week will get to name and place a lego brick on the class model. At the end of each term, these bricks are placed into a raffle for each class and the child's brick that is selected will be able to order a book of their choice. 
 
Spellings and Times tables
Tests for these will take place on a FRIDAY afternoon. The children will then record their scores in their Reading Records to take home.
