Our topic for Summer Term 2024 is Ancient Civilisations

This project teaches children about the history of three of the world’s first ancient civilisations: Ancient Sumer, Ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley civilisation. Children will learn about the rise, life, achievements and eventual end of each civilisation.

  • Our times tables test on a Friday will now be mixed times tables. 
  • The children will bring home a new 60 second read on Wednesday 17th April and they will need to bring it back on Tuesday 23rd April. 
  • The children will bring home a new set of spellings on Wednesday 17th April to learn for their next spelling test on Monday 22nd April. 
  • Please log into TTRockstars. The children have their log in details in their homework diaries. As we are now focussing on mixed times tables, please log in and select Soundcheck to play, as this will test the children on all the times tables. The children should be aiming to do this 4 times per week. I will be looking weekly to check how many times the children are practising.
