Our topic this term in Team 3 is... Ancient Egypt

Welcome to Team 3!  Our learning over the coming weeks will be focused on discovering all about the nAncient Egyptian civilisation. We will be learning all about the importance of the River Nile, Mummification and Egyptian Gods. We will do lots of hands on learning to make it fun and engaging. In Science, we will be studying Plants and investigating the conditions that a seed or bean will need in order to grow into a healthy plant. We will also look at parts of the plant and their functions. After this topic, we will move to look at light and will exploring sources of light. We will have fun making shadow puppets and torces in Design and Technology and will investigate whether distance has an effect on length of shadow. In Religious Eductaion we will study Islam, Humanism and finally Sikhism. Our class texts which will support all our cross-curricular learning are 'Secrets of a Sun King'  and 'Tilly Mint Tales'. Our current Spotlight Authors are Kate Pankhurst and David Long. Other exciting things this term include: Ancient Greece Day, Maths Day, Horn's Mill's Got Talent and Sports Day.

Home Learning

Having such a huge impact on children’s learning, children are expected to read for 10 minutes, 5 times a week at home and to record this in their reading record at least once per week. Your child will bring home a book of their choice from the class library and a colour coded book based on their current stage of development which will support the progression of their fluency and comprehension skills. 

Reading records and colour coded books should be brought into school every day. These will be changed regularly.

A link to home learning will be sent out every half-term and can also be found at the bottom of this page. This includes some spelling and maths to complete as well as some suggestions for additional reading and practical activities.

Please do feel free to come and chat to us, ask any questions or share any worries at any time- we are always here to help in whatever way we can.
