I hope everybody had a wonderful half term break and the children are ready to start another fantastic topic.
This half term our topic is Potions! The children will explore the realms of magic and mystery in reading and writing as they will create their own potion recipes, a newspaper article in order to capture the Grand High Witch and their very own Harry Potter sequel! In science, we will be looking at the changing states of solids, liquids and gases and we will be attempting some exciting investigations and experiments to explore their properties. In history, we will look back at how medicine has changed over time, with a particular focus on the Tudor period. In maths, we will be recapping on addition as well as beginning subtraction and multiplication. We will be working towards confidently using written methods in order to subtract and multiply larger numbers. We will also be practising our times tables daily; I have sent these home for the children to work at at home too.
Up until Christmas, Egypt class will have PE on a Tuesday and swimming on a Friday. Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school and that they bring their swimming kit on a Friday, including their swimming cap and a towel.
If you have any questions about your child’s class, routines, or learning i am pleased to talk to you at the classroom door either at the start of the day or the end of the day :)
