Home Learning Packs during Lockdown
Well done to all of you who have been working so hard in the last two weeks. Look in your third Home Learning Pack to see if you have been awarded an achievement certificate.
Read Write Inc lessons for PINK and GREY groups will continue to be supported with a daily video. These can be found on Turner Class page. Please encourage you child to join in with the video and keep learning their phonics.
Mr Robinson and I will be putting more videos on our class pages in the future and we hope to be using Google Classroom very soon. If you do not have a laptop or other suitable device at home please email to let me know.
Finally, I'd love to be able to share your work with your classmates so please send me a photo just like Scarlet has.
email@example.com and look out for another email inviting you and your child to a Googlemeet session with me.

Maths - using the mastery approach.
It is really important that the children understand what is happening to the numbers in their lessons. Before they writ in their books they use resources to see what is happening. Not only is it fun but it helps to keep the learning in their long term memory.
We have spent time looking at place value and how the position of a digit gives it its value.
The children have also been grouping amounts into equal groups. Division is probably the hardest mathematical operation to understand and the children have been working hard.

Ancient Egyptian rulers wore lots of jewellery including collars. They were made from gold and precious stones.

History - looking at the Ancient Egyptians
In our history topic we have been finding out about the Ancient Egyptians. We've looked into their beliefs and how their rulers (pharaohs) bodies were mummified to preserve them for their next lives. It was all pretty gruesome, especially removing their organs and brain!
We've learnt how important the River Nile was to them. Not only was it important for washing and drinking but also for moving goods through Egypt and essential for growing crops.
There were lots of opportunities for us to make things and we had a go at drawing people like the Ancient Egyptians did. It was a fun topic.
