After bringing the Stargazers Topic to a close we are now moving back in time to study the ancient Egyptians in our ‘Pharaohs’ topic. Our exciting visit to the Manchester Museum began our research in to this fascinating period. We will be learning about the historic beliefs of the people of ancient Egypt, the geography of the country and using this knowledge as inspiration for artwork and designs.
Sent on Thursday and returned on the following Tuesday. Please complete homework neatly using a pen or a pencil. Homework not returned to school on time will be completed during break time.
Monday and Thursday afternoon during the Autumn term. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school. As the weather gets colder we will often work outside so dark coloured leggings or track suit bottoms and a jumper are advisable. Also please remember no earrings on PE days.

Please listen to your child read and make a note every day. All children need to bring their reading book to school with their child’s reading record. These reading records will be checked regularly and there is an expectation that children note at least three comments a week.
