Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt.  We shall be looking at the importance of the NIle, how Egyptian society was organised as well as mummies, pharaohs and pyramids.  The children will be learning how to create key questions for research and how to use non fiction books. We shall be looking at wall paintings and maps and using them to make deductions about Egyptian life.  Our first English unit is information writing, followed by mystery stories.  Homework is due on Thursdays and includes reading, spelling and times tables.

PE is on Wednesday and Friday.  Children will need a change of trainers each day for the daily mile.
