Welcome to Foxes!
Class Teacher: Mrs Carpenter
Welcome to The Foxes.
Welcome back after a fantastic Christmas break.
This term we will be focusing on the topic 'Who's got the power?' - we will be investigating Ancient Egypt and the power struggles of the Pharaohs and rulers. We will be looking at mummification, cartouches, canopic jars, death masks and much more... Stay tuned to see what else we get up to.
In English we will be reading 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll and using this as our inspiration for improving our inference, deduction, description and vocabulary skills. Our Heroes and Heroines travel to Egypt to try and return an ancient canopic jar before a curse takes hold. An amazing story set in 1941 when the discovery of Tutankhamun's burial place was found by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon.
In mathematics we will be focusing our time on the skills needed to solve problems and reason how we did it. We will look at misconceptions and write journals on how to show others the methods and vocabulary needed.
Year 6 will also be practicing answering SAT style questions, making sure the concepts and language is understood.
PE will be on a Tuesday, Swimming is on Wednesday.
Spellings are given out and tested on a Wednesday.
