There are some changes to homework this year so please see the below homework overview for detail. Homework will be 'set' on a Friday and should be handed in on a Wednesday. Pre-learning tasks will also be set across the term. These tasks will give children an advantage in class and will help to bring out what learners already know; what misconceptions they may have and what interests them.
Below are some key documents relating to our class.
Our learning project for term four is 'Pharaohs'! A learning project all about the wonders of Ancient Egypt. We'll be learning about Howard Carter and the discovery of Tutankhamun, the role of a Pharaoh, Cleopatra, Gods and Goddesses, Egyptian myths, the mummification process and how the Ancient Egyptian's impacted the life we live today in modern Britain.
Every week comprehension homework will be set in the KS2 English Comprehension Year 5 Targeted Question Book your child has been given. This homework will be marked as a class so it is important homework is completed every Wednesday and that the book is in school.
This weeks comprehension is: Tracking Basking Sharks (News article) pages 18-19, questions 1-6 Due: Wednesday 13th March 2019
