A warm welcome to all parents and children to Barnum class. We hope you have all had a lovely summer and that the children are feeling refreshed and ready to start this year's learning journey.
Our topic for this term is 'Walk like an Egyptian'. We will be learning about life in Ancient Egypt. Our learning across all subjects will be inspired by Ancient Egypt. Our class text will be 'The Egyptian Cinderella ' by Shirlie Climo. This text will be the basis of our learning in English.
In maths, we will begin with understanding place value and developing our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills around this maths topic area.
In Science ,our area of learning will be materials and their properties, including rocks. This will provide an exciting opportunity to develop our learning through our topic area.
PE will be on a Thursday and Friday, so could you please ensure PE kits are in school on those days. It is also helpful if PE kits are left at school as our PE lessons could change last minute.
As last year, the children will bring their homework home on a Friday and we ask that it be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Regular reading and talking about what your child is reading with them will also be important.
The children know which times tables they should be learning so it would be great if you would support them with this. Remember, the children do have access to Times Tables Rockstars online to help with this learning.
We are really looking forward to working with you and your children this year. If you have any questions or queries at any point, please don't hesitate to have a chat with us.
Mrs File, Mrs Lintott and Miss Foreman.
