Welcome back to term 2 in Cedar 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 at the end of term 2.
The museum will take place at the end of the day on Friday 8th December and will be a chance to showcase the funerary masks that the children will be making in D&T this term, their English writing and any other artefacts created at home. The children will be designing their masks, before making the mask itself from card and papier mache. They will then finally paint the masks before presenting them to you!
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 swim until week 6 of term and our other PE session will continue to be on a Wednesday afternoon.
Our Christmas concert performance will take place on Monday 11th December for families to attend and on Tuesday 12th December for members of the community.
