Mrs Dyde's Class 2019 - 2020

Mrs Dyde

 

 

Welcome to the Autumn Term 2019 

A warm welcome to you and your child. I hope you have all had a lovely Summer and are looking forward to the year ahead. This page is intended to help you feel involved and informed of everything we are doing. Please do take time to read through the information, which along with the welcome letter, will give you a flavour of what we are going to be doing during the year. We will all be working extremely hard, and for those in Year 6 they will be working towards their SAT's which they will sit in May. For all of us there will be also be great fun and lasting memories.

 

English                                               

This term our first book study will be the play written by Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet. A very famous yet tragic love story. We have drawn our inspiration from this and have an exciting range of writing planned.

       

The Egyptians

Our first topic will be the Egyptians, which will include learning about the land of Egypt and the importance of the River Nile; the process of mummification; the building of the pyramids; making our own sarcophagus and death maskss and of course we will explore the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter.

                              

 

Our Curriculum 

The Autumn Curriculum planner will provide you with more information on the range of exciting learning activities we have planned across all areas of the curriculum. You will be able to see a variety of ideas so please do take time to look at it. 

Autumn Term Curriculum Planner

 

 

For parents there will be a Meet and Greet evening (primarily for Year 5) which you are welcome to attend. I will be outlining the curriculum planned and expectations for the year ahead. This will take place early on Tuesday 10th September at 3:45pm in the classroom.

 

We can't escape them and we know they will be upon us at towards the end of the year. SAT's week will be from Monday 11th May to Thursday 14th May 2020. We will be holding a meeting for parents and children in Year 6 to explain the SAT's, to look through some papers and to discuss levels. This will be on 17th September 2019 at 7:00pm in the hall.
