What are we learning about this term?


This term our class are learning about the ‘Ancient Egyptians’. We will be exploring artefacts and pyramids, with exciting immersive learning opportunities such as tomb discoveries and the mummification process. This is will a cross curricular topic, and we will be reporting on the murder of a Pharoah and writing exciting Egyptian adventure stories in English. In science we are learning all about the forces needed to build the pyramids and are mummifying an apple and observing the changes that take place. We are very excited to be attending Glan Llyn this term where the children will be taking part in canoeing, rock climbing, fast track and archery.


We always welcome volunteers who would like to come into class to help with some of our more practical topic lessons or to help listen to the children reading. If you do have any time to spare then please see Mrs Owens or Miss Heard.


Reading– In our class we change reading books on a Friday. Children are encouraged to bring back their completed books on a Thursday morning ready to change it for a new one. Please write in your child’s reading log to record when you have read with them at home, although we don’t always have chance to write a note back, we do check these books each week and children who have read at least three times receive extra dojos in class.
