Terms 1 and 2 Learning
Ancient Civilisations - Ancient Egypt (Term 1) & Ancient Greece (Term 2)
Please see our newsletter for more information about our topics and learning for term 1 and 2.
In term 1, our reading book is 'The Egyptian Cinderella' by Shirley Climo, which is all about a young girl named Rhodopis and her Rosy Red Slipper. In term 2 we will be reading 'Who Let the Gods Out?' by Maz Evans, which is an action packed adventure all about the Greek Gods. (Maz Evans has a new book coming out in February, how exciting!?)
We'll also be exploring related non-fiction and poetry. Through whole class reading lessons we will explore the skills of vocabulary, inference, prediction, explaining and summarising.
Please engage in our whole school reading challenge to support your child’s reading at home. For every 50 reads they can choose a reading book from Mr Winterburn.
Our writing will link to our class texts, ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo and ‘Who Let the Gods Out’ by Maz Evans. We will be exploring the skills of writing varied sentence structures, using advanced punctuation, such as commas, and using a wide range of vocabulary. We will do this through the genres of narrative, newspaper report and poetry.
We will send home weekly spellings on a Friday for a dictation the following week.

We will be covering the following objectives:
- Place value – numbers up to millions

- Statistics: line graphs, tables and timetables
- Multiplication and Division – factors, prime numbers, square and cube numbers and multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000.
- Measurement – measuring and calculating perimeter and area of rectangles
Maths Planets will be completed every Friday. Practise sheets and overviews are available on the Maths Planets page.
The following is expected to take children an average of 30 minutes each day.
Maths: Children need to continue learning for their maths planets; alongside continued practice of times table and related division facts.
Reading: Children are expected to read at home, at least 5 times each week. At least one of these times needs to be with an adult but please read more often with your child if you are able. Reading records are to be written in by the children (at least 5 times a week) and signed by an adult at home (at least once a week), you may add any comments that you wish to make.
Spelling: Children are being given a list of spellings at the start of each term. Ten of these will be included in a weekly dictation every Friday. These spellings are in their homework book. Please ask your child's teacher if you need another copy.
