Ancient Egypt

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to school after the half term break. We are about to embark on our final half term of learning together with lots of exciting trips and activities. Our topic focus will be ‘Ancient Egypt’. Here is some more detail of the content.

Summer 2 Web

Please see planning tab for more detail.

The format of homework will continue as last half term. To summarise, the children should complete the following each week:

  • Spellings – say, look, cover, write, check
  • Grammar & Punctuation activity sheet
  • Maths worksheet – related to our in class learning
  • One topic task of your choosing
  • Reading diary completed with reading Monday-Friday

PE will be taught in school this half term but could take place on any day depending on weather conditions, so please make sure your kit is in school every day. We will be fine tuning our cricket skills ready for the cricket festival.

Thank you for a fantastic year of learning. I look forward to our final half term together and would like to wish you and your children all the best as they move onto the next stage of their primary school journey. Many thanks for your continued support. As always, if you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me, my door is always open.
