EPIC Log-in: uxe9762
This term we're reading 'The Time-Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess' by Julia Jarman and only a few chapters in and the children are loving it! We'll use it to boost our confidence in answering reading comprehension questions each week, and to find new words to learn. In turn, this text will provide lots of rich writing opportunities that will link in with our Ancient Egypt topic, and help us get really ready for our time as writers in Year 4.
In mathematics we will have a real focus on fractions, and lead this into tenths as decimals. We'll look at equivalent fractions, comparing, ordering, adding and subtracting them as well. We'll drip into time, and finish the summer with some lovely work in shape as well as measuring mass and capacity. Add to this weekly fluency sessions and basic skills sessions and there will be lots to explore in this fun subject.
Lots of humanitarian skills will come through our Ancient Egypt topic work. We'll look at this famous old civilisation and the part of the world it was based in, and how it changed over time. We'll examine beliefs and daily life, and look to become confident historians. In addition, we'll use this amazing period in human history to explore Egyptian art, hieroglyphics, jewellery and more!
