Welcome back to term 2 in Beech class!
This term sees the continuation of our Ancient Egyptian topic which will run throughout our learning again this term.
In English, we will be learning to write non-chronological reports about some of the interesting areas of Ancient Egypt that we have learnt about. The children will be doing their own research before learning about the structure and features of a non-chronological report, in order to be able to write their own. The children will also be writing captions to go alongside the work that they will display in Year 3’s Egyptian museum towards the end of term 2.
The museum will be a chance to showcase the funerary masks that the children made in D&T last term, their English writing and any other artefacts created at home.
This term, our maths learning will focus on column addition and subtraction where the children will be learning to ‘carry’ and ‘exchange’ numbers in order to complete more complex calculations.
We will continue to go to forest school until the very end of term and our other PE session will be with a Bristol Sport football coach on a Monday afternoon. Please remember suitable kit for both of these sessions, including a change of shoes for PE.
Our Christmas concert performance will take place on Monday 17th December for families to attend and on Tuesday 18th December for members of the community and grandparents.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Have a good term!
