This half term we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians for our theme work. We will be exploring why the Ancient Egyptians were a significant period of the past, why famous landmarks and geographical locations such as the Pyramids of Giza and the River Nile were important, and what were some of the prominent and important gods. We will also look at the process of mummification and famous pharaohs such as Tutankhamun and why the discovery of their tombs was a famous and well documented historical moment.
In maths we will be focusing on place value. Pupils will identify the difference between units, tens, hundred and thousands and understand how 4 digit numbers can be broken down and partitioned accordingly. Pupils will also understand how numbers can be rounded to the nearest 10 and 100 and how to interpret number lines up to 10,000.
In English, our focused book will be Gorilla by Anthony Browne and the pupil's work will aim to identify skills such as expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials, and how these can be implemented into their own writing. Pupils will also have weekly comprehension lessons to build up their understanding of texts.
