Hello and a warm welcome to Lancasters! A lovely mix of curious and passionate young learners from years 4 and 5. We are looking forward to sharing with you all the fantastic learning that takes place in our classroom. In Lancasters, we strive to always do our best whilst having fun along the way, so please keep checking our class web page for news and updates.
In term 3, our topic in Lancasters will be Mystery. Our Class text will be Winter's Child by Angela McAllister. Children will look at a range of persuasive techniques in their writing and use characters in the book as a stimulus for emotive writing.
Maths will firstly focus on the multiplication and division of 4 digit numbers. As the term progresses children will investigate fractions looking at how they are represented in a concrete, pictorial and abstract manner. We will continue to consolidate their 'number sense' in our fluency and calculation lessons throughout the term.
In our History topic, we shall be discovering all about the world of the Ancient Egyptians! Throughout our learning we shall discover: who the Ancient Egyptians were; what Gods and Goddess' they believed in; their burial habits and how they used the arid desert for a sustainable way of life....we may even try to recreate our own Egyptian tombs!
