In Topic, we are learning about the culture of ancient Egypt, including traditions, homes, food, leisure activities, sport, clothes and religion. We will also be producing art in an Egyptian style: writing in hieroglyphics; and creating our own Egyptian gods or goddesses. In addition, we will be studying the work of local sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Our learning in Life Skills will be all about etiquette, including: writing a letter of thanks to Father Christmas; table manners and cutlery; opening doors; body language during conversation; taking turns, patience, fairness and cooperation; and etiquette in public, such as in class, at church, etc. In P.E, we are choreographing dance routines and learning to play hockey and basketball. R.E, this half term, is all about Judaism; and in Personal, Social and Health Education, we have already made New Year”s resolutions; and the children have considered what they want to be in the future. We will soon be discussing what you need to do to achieve your dreams and goals; and how you will know when you’ve achieved them! We will also consider failure and how to deal with it.
