History: Ancient Egypt
This week in History, we have been looking at how different groups of people contributed to the achievements of Ancient Egypt.
The children started off by matching the different job roles to their definitions and then ordering them in the importance of their contributions to Ancient Egyptian society. Here are some examples:
Afterwards, we focused in on the Ancient Egyptian farmers and the children used hieroglyphics to decode information about their job roles. Take a look at some of our fantastic work!
Living and Learning – I respect others
In Living and Learning, we looked at how we respect others. We discussed discrimination, protected characteristics and the Equality Act 2010.
Discrimination is defined as “the unfair treatment of people because of who they are or because they have a certain characteristic.”
The protected characteristics are:
- Sexual orientation
- Pregnancy and Maternity
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage and Civil partnership
We looked at different scenarios (both made up and real-life cases), where people were treated unfairly and tried to find a solution to the problem.
We now have a greater understanding that individual characteristics make everyone in the world unique and we can respect people in several different ways.
Netball skills with Tracey Neville
Today, ten Year 5 and 6 children took part in a netball skills event with Tracey Neville, former England netball international and England head coach, at the opening of the new sports dome at The Grammar School at Leeds.
The children enjoyed three skills sessions – shooting, passing and defending and the consensus from all of them, was that they had a fantastic afternoon.

So far this half term, we have battled who has the best book, explored vocabulary and this week we are creating comic strips.
Take a look at some of our fantastic reading record activities:
Please remember to bring your reading records into school every Friday so we can continue to share your great work. If you need help to complete an activity, take a look in the front of your reading records as each task is explained or simply ask me.
I’m looking forward to seeing your homework!
Autumn term after-school clubs
Some of our after-school clubs will be restarting next week and they will run until week commencing 05 December. Please note some clubs begin after half term when building work at school has been completed.
Places can be booked via Gateway.
Our physical activity clubs continue to be heavily subsidised through the investment of our PE and Sport Premium.
Each club has a limit on the maximum number of children who can attend. As numbers are limited we ask that you limit your child to one club initially. If there are clubs with remaining places, we will then offer these as a second club.
Please contact the office if you have any queries about the clubs or the booking system.
