The children have had a great time exploring the Ancient Egyptians through English this term. They began the topic by writing diary entries from Howard Carter. These diary entries focused on the momentous discovery of Tutankhamun. The children then looked more deeply at narrative poetry and how the language within it can create affects on the reader. For this, the children explored the famous poem ' The Highwayman', the children also explored archaic language within the poem and considered how language has changed over time.
In Maths this term, the children explored fractions and built their understanding of adding and subtracting them and calculating the fraction of amounts.
Throughout this term, the children have had the opportunity to learn all about the changes in materials. They did this through a variety of experiments where they learnt about irreversible and reversible changes and how these changes can sometimes result in the formation of new materials.
In RE, the children continued to build their understanding of the importance of Lent and the sacrifice that Jesus made for us in their period. The children have also considered how they can honour that sacrifice by living their lives how Jesus intended.
