Welcome back for the Spring term, Hazel Class

Hello Hazel Class!

Welcome back to the Spring term. You have all settled in so quickly after the Christmas break and are clearly ready for another fun and busy term.

This half term, our focus in English is on persuasive writing. We will be working on creating our own advertising campaign for the ‘Fun Fit Factory’, encouraging others to live healthy lifestyles, look after their bodies and join the Fun Fit Factory. We will be looking at rhetorical questions, using quotes and statements, interesting language such as similes and expanded noun phrases and commands.

In History and Geography, we are continuing to explore Ancient Egypt and making comparisons to live in Egypt today. We will be investigating the importance of the river Nile, the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter and learning all about the Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.

In Science we are beginning to look at Electricity. We will learn about what appliances use mains or battery electricity and how to keep ourselves safe when using them. We will also be creating our own electrical circuits to light up bulbs, activate motors and buzzers and make use of switches and conductive materials.

Our important days to remember are:
Monday AM – Forest school.
Wednesday PM – Indoor PE
Thursday PM – Swimming (Until the 30th of January) and Outdoor PE.

Please make sure you bring your Learning Diary as well as your reading book into school every day and that you are reading, and practising spellings or time tables every evening!

Thank you for your continued support,
Mr Parker
