Welcome to Muntjac Class!
Our current topic is 'Ancient Egypt'. The children are writing an Egyptian story based in the pyramids. They are learning about the Pharaohs, hieroglyphics and what life was like in Ancient Egypt. It has been so interesting to see the artefacts and books children have been bringing in on the topic.
One unlucky member of Muntjac even got turned into a mummy for the lesson!
Here is some silhouette art we created:
We also made some Egyptian head pieces, just like the Pharaoh's wore!
We also used clay to make some Egyptian inspired art pieces.
In Maths, our current unit is on fractions. They have learnt what they are and which fractions add together to make a whole. We will be continuing with this topic and finding equivalent fractions. Our focus in KIRFs is telling the time, so please continue to practise this at home to develop this skill.
On Friday's we are sharing books with Reception children. It was absolutely lovely the other day to see how engaged the children were with each other! I look forward to our next session!
In Guided Reading we are reading a book called 'You are Awesome' which is a brilliant and inspiring book about developing a positive mindset! We are thoroughly enjoying this book filled with inspiring stories about perseverance and having self confidence to achieve your goals.
I have also seen some fantastic examples of reading records where children are increasingly reading aloud at home! Keep this up!
What a lovely day World Book Day was! It was brilliant to see the children so excited about books and sharing stories with children across the school. Please have a look at the pictures below.
