Squirrels  Class

Welcome back to Squirrels’ class. I hope that everyone had a fantastic Easter break and is ready for the continued fun and challenges ahead.

This term sees squirrels travel back in time to a period of great excitement and major developments. We will travel to Ancient Egypt and explore pyramids and more as we become archaeologists and attempt to answer the question, "The Ancient Egyptians:-awful or awesome?"

Alongside this, our science topics will be electricity and sound. Our topics will lead us through how electricity works and why we need it. We will also investigate how sound travels, and will hopefully make our own musical instruments and "telephones". This will be quite hands on and will involve lots of learning through doing.

In maths, we will initially be focusing on measurement and shape. We will then continue on to calculations and reasoning skills. As always times tables play an extremely important role in our maths and it would be greatly appreciated if children could spend time learning these, not just by memory as a song but inside out and back to front as well. All of these skills will come into play as we move onto calculations. It will be a busy maths term.
