Year 4/5 - Mrs Ramsell

 

Spring Term 2018

(Please click here for our topic web)

We cannot wait to find out about the Ancient Egyptians this term! There is some great information on http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory/worldhistory/ramesses/

English

In English this term we will be  evaluating and writing instructions, thinking about the features and structure.  We will be using a Literacy Shed video to help us with our Adventure story narratives based on Egyptian pyramid explorers.  

After half term, we will be honing our journalistic writing skills, using the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb as a subject for our own newspaper reports. Finish for Easter with another look at some different poetic styles. 

Maths

The Spring term sees the children learning all about fractions, graphs, time and decimals.  All children should continue to practise their times tables to ensure they can recall them quickly and confidently.  Don't forget the matching division facts too!  Click here for some fun times tables games you can play online.  

PE 

PE lessons will usually take place on a Wednesday and Thursday but PE kits must be in school everyday.   Every child must have a pair of trainers for outdoor PE use.
