Mrs Collinstone is the teacher for Cedar Class.
Through the Portal.
This half term, we will be using the book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to develop our persuasive writing. We will be writing a letter to the Queen of Narnia to persuade her to set Edmund free from her prison. For Remembrance Day, we will acknowledge the fallen soldiers by sharing war poetry and writing our own poem using the senses. Poppies will be made and history will be shared.
In maths, we will develop our multiplication and division skills, as well as, finding multiples and factors of numbers. The children will also be learning their times tables and there will be certificates for quick recall to develop their understanding of number.
The Land of Pharoahs.
This half term, we will be learning about the Egyptians. It's an exciting quest as we find out how important the deceased were and the rituals they put in place for the afterlife. We will create our names using hieroglyphics and we will develop our drawing skills by sketching some artefacts found in Tutankhamun's tomb. I wonder if the stories about his tomb are true?
