WELCOME TO CHESTNUT CLASS
This term our topic is ‘Tomb Raiders’ and we will find out lots of things about Ancient Egypt, including:
- Why were the pyramids built?
- What was life like in Ancient Egypt?
- What did the Egyptians believe about the afterlife?
- What gods did they worship?
- Who was Tutankhamen and was there really a curse on his tomb?
In our Science lessons we are exploring states of matter and setting up a range of experiments and investigations to help us analyse the properties of solids, liquids and gases.
Our current reading text is Flotsam by David Weisner – we are using this weird and wonderful wordless text as a jumping-off point for our own ideas and will adapt and rewrite the story to create our own versions.
We will be focussing on number sense and place value in Mathematics, as well as continuing to learn our times tables. There will be a weekly times tables test and competition on a Friday.
Monday – P.E. with Mr Johnson
Tuesday – Spanish with Mrs Chamberlain
Thursday – Spelling test
Friday – Times tables test/competition,
Music with Alison Barlow,
P.E. with Mr Clarke
Please ensure that your child has suitable P.E. kit in school on a Friday and Monday.
Here are some websites which you could use to help your children learn their times tables – we are currently practising our 3x and 4x tables.
