This half term our topic is 'A Night at the Museum!' and we will be answering the question,
"What can we learn from Ancient Egypt?"
We are very excited about our second half term in Class 4, especially leading up to one of the most exciting times of the year!
In Literacy, based on the 'Talk for Writing' approach, we will be immersing ourselves in the story of 'A Night at the Museum 2'. We will learn the story, as well as writing character and setting descriptions, recounts, mini scene descriptions, job advertisements, advertisements, persuasive letters, poetry and comparisons before innovating and inventing our own stories. We will also be writing non-chronological reports about the Ancient Egyptians. In our class reading sessions we will be reading the book 'Secrets of a Sun King'.
In R.E we will reflect on this half term's value of 'TRUST'. We will also ask 'Was Jesus the messiah?' and explore the Incarnation unit of Understanding Christianity.
In Science we will be investigating forces and exploring how the Egyptians built the Great Pyramids. We may even design our own machines, using our knowledge of pulleys, gears and levers.
In Geography we will locate the country of Egypt on a world map and look at its key physical and human features. We will also investigate rivers and the importance of the River Nile to the Egyptian civilisation.
In History, we will be learning all about Ancient Egypt civilisation and the way of life of Egyptians. We hope to create our very own interactive school museum so watch this space!
