Here is a summary of what we will be covering this term:

Well done everyone on reciting your poems this week! You were all amazing. We had a super variety of poems with subjects including:
a peppermint stick, a turtle, a snowball, a crocodile, a fat cat and many more! Also a beautiful poem from Megan Hackett about Grandad that deserves a special mention. Well done to everyone!
Theme -Our Autumn Term theme is Ancient Egypt. We will focus on Egyptian Gods, food, hieroglyphics and mummification. We will also study artefacts and learn about how we know so much about this ancient civilisation. Later in the term we will enjoy an Ancient Egyptian day when you can come dressed as an Egyptian or a mummy!
English - Myths, poetry and a narrative linked to our science topic about the states of matter.
History - children will learn about the life of the Ancient Egyptians.
R.E- We start the Autumn term learning about key people and events from the Old Testament including Abraham, Isaac and Joseph. We then move on to Joseph, his brothers and Moses. Our faith week is centred around Hinduism and later in the term we prepare for Christmas with a unit on Advent.
Art/ D & T- We start the term learning how to draw a portrait. This term's artist study is Paul Klee. We also learn how to draw like an Egyptian.
Geography - The River Nile and its importance for the civilisation at the time. Locating Egypt on a map, the continents of the world and the Red Sea.
Music -Children will learn how to play a brass instrument and explore rhythm and pitch.
Science - The states of matter.
