Welcome to summer term!
This term our topic is 'Ancient Egypt'. We will be using source work and an enquiry-led approach to answer questions such as ' So who did build the pyramids?' and 'What can we learn about Ancient Egyptian life from a pair of old sandals?'
Please see below for the home learning grid linked to this topic for use if you are self isolating.
In maths, this term, we will be focusing on the following topics: Algebra, Statistics and Properties of shape. We will also be revisiting decimals and percentages as part of our recovery curriculum.
Our English work will be built around the text 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll.
We will also be learning about Electricity and Light in science.
Please check the curriculum overview on the orange tab (above) so see further details of the objectives we will cover this year.
Secrets of a Sun King
A discovery from ancient Egypt... A cursed package... The untold story of a young pharaoh...
When Lilian Kaye finds a parcel on her grandad's doorstep, she is shocked to see who sent it: a famous Egyptologist, found dead that very morning, according to every newspaper in England!
The mysterious package holds the key to a story... about a king whose tomb archaeologists are desperately hunting for.
