Dear Parents/ Carers,
Hello and welcome to Year 5/6. We have made a great start to this half term!
We have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians within our learning challenge curriculum and have enjoyed linking this to both our Maths and English learning. Within Maths, we have used a scale and an Atlas to work out the distances from different cities within Egypt and within English we have been writing our own fantastic Ancient Egyptian themed narrative stories! Towards the end of the Topic we will be deepening our understanding of the Ancient Egyptians through making replica Egyptian canopic jars.
Also in Maths, we have been focussing on the place value of seven digit numbers and will be deepening our understanding of the four operations, using larger numbers.
Within English we will be moving onto looking at biographies and non- chronological reports, which will be linked to our Science topic of famous scientists.
We are looking forward to the exciting learning opportunities that next term will bring.
