Term 4 Ancient Civilisations

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back to everyone. We are so excited to now continue with our ancient Egyptian topic back in school. Throughout term 5, our topic will be Ancient civilisations with a focus on Ancient Egypt. This history based topic will see us transported back in time over 5000 years to explore the pyramids, which were built as tombs for pharaohs. In particular, we will study the famous tomb which laid Tutankhamen to rest. During English, we will focus on journalistic writing and diary entries. We will use our Egyptian experience day at this point to inspire and stimulate us in our writing. Within maths, we will cover multiples, factors and prime numbers as well as fractions including decimals. The children will use ICT sessions to create Power-Point presentations about Ancient Egypt utilising their developing knowledge of this ancient civilisation. Our art and DT skills will focus on texture and textiles where the children will create their own Egyptian paper and create artwork by painting on to papyrus paper. Cricket, hockey and athletics will be our P.E. focus and during PSHE, we will be looking at healthy me and how we can stay healthy.

Thank you for your continued support.
