Howard Carter history maker or history taker?

This term we will be studying Ancient Egypt.  We will begin by investigating Howard Carter and his discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.  As historians, we will be examining the objects he found and speculating what this tells us about the Ancient Egyptians and their belief about the afterlife.  If you have not completed your homework project, it is not too late.  Please bring it in so that we can all admire your efforts.

Mathematics 

We will be using the four operations to solve money and measurement problems.  Later in the half term we will be developing our understanding of co-ordinates and linking this to consolidate our knowledge of 2D shapes.

You could help your child at home by looking at receipts and allowing them to pay for things in shops and work out the change.  In addition, baking provides an an excellent way for you to support your child’s estimation skills and ability to read scales.  I would be glad to receive any of the cakes you make!
