Learning Intentions


This term we will be studying the text 'Just Imagine'. We will be combining literacy skills developed through this text and our project knowledge of Ancient Egypt to produce many genres of writing whilst enhancing reading and oracy skills. Later in the term, they will be writing their own chronological newspaper report using the sighting of an undiscovered Ancient Egyptian burial ground in Malpas. They will be explaining information and ideas as a news reporter on the sighting. They will be reading information about Egyptian artefacts, finding facts and information through a range of sources e.g. books, internet.


In Welsh, children will be continuing to develop and build on their vocabulary.  They will be learning vocabulary related to asking and answering questions about themselves including their pets.  They will be reading times of the clock and discussing their daily routines. They will also be learning to read different stories and texts and expressing their opinions on what they have read.



Year 4 enjoyed buddying up with Year 2 to help them with their reading!
