SPRING TERM CURRICULUM MAP
Friday was Maths Day in Year 4. We read 'Math Curse' about a girl who starts to see everything as a maths problem! We worked on some of the problems in the book with equipment and then went all around school to see what was happening before making our own St Antony's Maths problems from what we saw!
" I think it was really good because you get to see what other people think about numbers. Doing Maths all day lets me learn more." Monty 4C
"I think it was great because we got to read a fun book and then I liked taking part in a debate about whether our lives are just all one big maths problem." Iris 4C
"I thought it was really good because I loved going round the school to see all the classes and seeing what they were doing." Henry 4H
"I liked exploring that a lot of the things in the world have maths in them even things that you don't realise like reading a book." Vivienne 4H
Following on from our exciting visit to the British Museum, next week’s home learning will be to research an area of Ancient Egyptian life that you have agreed with your topic group so that you can collate information for your non-fiction report.
The topics are:
Toys and games
War and weapons
Clothes, jewellery and keeping clean
Gods and Goddesses
You can go online to find out more about your topic, make notes to share with your group and print off pictures to use in your report. There is a selection of websites below to get you started.
You could also go to the library to borrow some books about Ancient Egyptian life and read and make notes from these.
Feel free to draw and colour your own illustrations to use in the reports!
Trip to the British Museum
We had a fabulous day on Wednesday at the British Museum. We visited the Egyptian galleries and saw objects from everyday life in Egypt as well lots of mummified people and animals! There was so much to see it was difficult to choose our favourite artefact. We finished our day looking at the Egyptian sculpture gallery and saw how archaeologists are able to piece together even large statues from buildings.

Curriculum Newsletter - Autumn
Welcome back to school and to your new year group! We are looking forward to our year ahead with lots of exciting learning opportunities ahead.
We will be holding a Parents Welcome meeting next Wednesday 12th September at 3.20pm. The idea of the meeting is to introduce ourselves, outline our expectations of the children in their new year group in relation to home learning etc and to let you know about some of the topics and activities that we will be looking at throughout the year. It is also a chance for you to ask any general questions you may have. We hope to see as many of you as possible but if you cannot attend, the slides will be posted on the website shortly after the meeting.
