Welcome back to an exciting Summer Term!

 

Our IPC topic is about Temples, Tombs and Treasure and our Science topic is all about Electricity and States of Matter.

 

We will be studying the Egyptians, looking at their daily life, the importance of their gods, how pyramids were built and of course mummification!

                 

We will be visiting the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge where they have a fantastic Egyptian Gallery.

The Ipswich Museum also has an Egyptian Gallery which is smaller but well worth a visit in the holidays or half term if you can make it.

Class information

 

Homework

 

Homework will be given out on Fridays to be handed in the following Thursday. Spellings will be given out on Friday. Each week the spellings will consist of 10 words which fit spelling patterns and extra words from the year 3/4 statutory words set by the government. Please ensure your child learns his/her words each week. We will be continuing the 'Spelling Bee' this year.

 

Times Tables

 

We learn times tables in a certain order. (Please feel free to come in and see our times tables display.) Everyone will start with 2s in September and then move up through the chosen order until they reach 'The Moon'. Children will be tested each week and will move up or be re-tested. Please practise times tables as much as possible over the holidays - car journeys are the perfect time.Times Tables Rock stars is a new and exciting way to learn times tables. Your child has his/her own password.Please encourage your child to use it as much as possible

 

.

 Reading.

 

Please listen to your child read as often as you can. Just ten minutes every night can really help your child to progress in their reading. (Even fluent readers may need help with difficult words.)

When you have listened to your child, please sign and date the pages read. Reading diaries will be checked weekly by Mrs Cable and a raffle ticket will be awarded if your child has read five times or more in a week.
