Spring Term 2021

Ancient Egypt

Our topic this term is 'Ancient Egypt' where we will be learning about what life was like for the Ancient Egyptians. During our topic, we will be developing our Historical enquiry skills and asking questions to develop our understanding. 




Our text this term is 'Secrets of a Sun King' written by Emma Carroll. 


In Years 3 and 4, we will be focusing on the following things:

  • Developing our comprehension skills - working on our prediction skills, retrieval and inference questions. We will be improving our vocabulary and understanding, as well as answering questions by using clues in the text.

  • Becoming familiar with the features of stories, and developing our descriptive skills.

  • Continuing to develop our love of reading.  WE ALL LOVE READING! 

  • Writing setting and character descriptions, and innovating stories that we are familiar with. We are continuing to develop our vocabulary and writing technique to form longer narratives. 

  • Improving our knowledge of SPaG. We will focus on extending the range of sentences with one or more clause using a wider range of conjunctions, choosing nouns or pronouns appropriately, and expressing time, place and cause using conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions.

We will also be looking at the text 'The Egyptian Cinderella' by Shirley Climo.


  • In Maths we will be looking at the 4 mathematical operations and our mathematical reasoning. We will be focussing on developing our fluency, problem-solving and reasoning using APE. (Answer it, Prove it, Explain it!)

  • We will also be working on our understanding of fractions.

It would be really helpful if you could: 

  • Practise all of the times tables.

  • Let your child explain what they have done in Maths that day.

  • Explore topics assigned on Mathletics.
