Summer is here, and Owl Class are inching their way towards SATS and to our PGL residential trip in June! It will be an action-packed term, with a focus on revision for our Year 6 pupils and new subjects for our Year 5's. It's not all high drama though: we have excellent and exciting topics to explore! Ancient Egypt is a central theme across several topics, rearing its head in English, as we look at instructional writing (how to mummify a Pharoah), information writing (what will happen to that poor Pharoah in the Egyptian afterlife), and then a piece of dialogue driven, tomb-raiding narrative! Egypt is the focus of History in summer term 2, and in DT this term as we attempt to make out own pop-up books.
Our Whole School topic this term is 'What a Wonderful World', and Owl Class will be interpreting this with a focus on Ancient Egypt in English, History and DT, and modern Egypt in our Geography topic of Rivers. Egypt is an amazing an evocative theme, so I would love the children to dig deep in Ancient Egypt culture to enrich their knowledge: even Marvel's Moon Knight is a fun subject for older children to hop on and generate enthusiasm.
