Autumn Term 1
It was wonderful to see you all back at school on Friday, we have missed you so much! For Step-up September our topic will be Ancient Egypt. You can see an overview of what we will be learning here:
Medium term plan step up september
Each week you are expected to read to an adult at home at least three times. Books are sent home on Monday and should be returned the following Friday (unless you have not finished the book). In addition, you should practise multiplication tables on TT Rockstars and learn your weekly spellings. You may also choose to create a power point presentation on an aspect of Ancient Egypt that you can share with the class.
Year 3 week 3 spelling
Year 4 week 3 spelling
(NB: Please note that children only take part in ‘Spelling Bingo’ if it is appropriate for them to do so.)

Daily lessons for each year group – teacher led.
Practise multiplication tables – Very important for Year 3 and Year 4.
As it is a new term, I have set some new tasks for you to do:

Some of the fun events that took place last year:
Our science topic ‘States of Matter’ was enhanced by a visit from a STEM Ambassador, who spent an afternoon with us. We also visited Eureka! and took part in a coding activity.
Our World Book Day Celebrations also took place during the term, with the whole school joining in a series of activities about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter, Peter Rabbit and the poetry book, Heard it on the Playground.
