A very warm welcome to the Loyal Lemurs!

We are taught by Miss Hatfield and supported by

Our topic for Summer Term 2024 is Ancient Civilisations

In the Ancient Civilisations project, the children will learn about three of the earliest civilisations in the world; ancient Sumer, ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley civilisation. They will study the ancient Sumerian and ancient Egyptian civilisation in detail, to discover how crucial factors like water sources and farming helped them to develop and thrive. They will find out about important inventions and the growth of cities. The chidlren will also study the lives of different people in society, including the roles of kings and pharaohs. The children will reflect on their learning by identifying the similarities and differences between the two civilisations, before studying the Indus Valley civilisation independently. They will explore sources of evidence about the location of the Indus Valley, cities and trade, and note the reasons why historians know less about the Indus Valley than other ancient civilisations. They will then compare all three civilisations, before learning about the causes and consequences of each civilisation’s decline. The children will also consider whether or not these civilisations left a lasting legacy.

 Homework week beginning 1.7.2024


  • Our times tables test on a Friday will now be mixed times tables. 
  • The children will bring home a new 60 second read on Tuesday 2nd July and they will need to bring it back on Monday 8th July. This will be the final piece of homework for this academic year. 
  • There are no set spellings to learn this week. Next week the children will be tested on the year 3 and 4 statutory words. 
  • 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.
