Let’s travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of Ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries, mummies and kings.
You will find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discover Egypt and its fascinating culture.
Let’s unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and age-old artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods! You’ll make yourself a nemes and you will really look the part.
I hope you’re ready to work hard as an apprentice for Ramose; he’s the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Please help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife.
Now open the doorway to Ancient Egypt — who knows what treasures you will find?
PE: Class 5 will have two PE sessions a week. These sessions will be on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their full, named PE kit on these days and their kit is weather appropriate. Long hair will be tied up and jewellery will need to be removed.
Forest School: Class 5 have their forest school session on a Thursday. The children are in two groups and will need to bring their full forest school kit on their week. The children are verbally reminded when their week is and they are expected to independently remember this information.
Homework: The children get two pieces of homework a week. One will be maths and other will be literacy or topic based. This is handed out to them on a Tuesday morning and it is expected to handed in on the Monday morning. They will be given a full explanation of the homework on a separate sheet. Children will lose minutes of golden time if the homework is not handed in on time.
Spellings: The children receive their individualised spelling list on a Tuesday morning. They will be tested and given their new set of spellings through 'sampling' of the different word families and statutory spelling list. Children will be rewarded with a brick and a house point for full marks on their spelling test.
Reading: The children are expected to read their school reading book every day for at least 15 minutes. This will need to be recorded in their planner. When your child has completed their book they have the responsibility to tell their class teacher, who will then allow them to change their reading book. Children can change their library book every other week on a Thursday.
