Dear Parents/Carers,

 

Year 5 had a wonderful day on Wednesday, visiting the British Museum. They were able to enjoy the exciting ancient Egyptian exhibits by examining the displays, reading historical facts related to each as well as sketch some of the symbols displayed on the sarcophaguses.

 

Homework:

Continuing with our topic on Ancient Egyptians; this week we have been engaged in the Innovate (creative) section of the topic. For example, the children made Egyptian artefacts using clay.  What we would like the children to do this weekend is to think about what item they might need in the ‘afterlife’ and be prepared to talk about their choice in class next week.

 

Numeracy

This week the children have been working on Capacity.  Children can look at labels of jars, tins, bottles as well as other containers to find the capacity of the contents in each. We would like them to become more familiar with this measure so that they are confident when discussing this topic.

 

Reading

Children should be reading every day. They are to record what they read at home or at school in their yellow journal.  Please encourage your children to get up to date their recording whenever they read.

 

Reminder: Please make sure that your children have their PE kit in school for Sport day next Thursday 19th July 2018.

 

Thank you to those children who consistently complete their weekly homework.
