Spring Term 2
In Literacy, we will be reading all about Egypt and its fascinating history. We will learn about Howard Carter's discovery of the tomb of the boy king - Tutankhamun - and imagine ourselves making this historical discovery within a personal recount. We will also learn about modern Egypt and write our own information leaflets as a text hybrid.
In History, we will be studying the lives of people living in Ancient Egypt. We will begin by identifying the chronology of this period within the context of world history. We will use a range of sources to build our understanding and begin to recognise why the Ancient Egyptians are historically significant.
In Maths, we will be looking at solving problems and various strategies to help us to solve them. We will be using the bar model to solve word problems using all operations. We will also continue our work on fractions, decimals and percentages and also begin to look at ration and proportion.
In RE, we will be studying our unit about Islam. We will be considering the pilgrimage of Hajj and understand why it is important to Muslims.
In Art, we will be studying Egyptian tomb art and we will attempt to create our own contemporary versions through collage using mixed media.
In Computing, we will be researching and quizzing – collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data based on topic of Ancient Egypt.
In PSHCE, we will be learning how to stay safe online. We will begin to recognise ways in which the internet and social media can be used both positively and negatively. We will think about some of the different ways information and data is shared and used online.
