Saunton Spring Term 2023



This week, we have enjoyed learning about Cleopatra and Tutankhamun ready for our English final piece of writing. We learned all about how important the River Nile is in Egypt for all the people living there.

In Science, we conducted an experiment based on friction, we used different materials to make a ramp and timed how long it took a car to go down.

We have worked really hard in maths this week, investigating how multiplication and division are linked.


We have had a great time investigating using different tools to pick up paper clips, we found that magnets work the best and we didn’t even need to touch the paper clips for the magnets to stick. In Maths, we have been working on correspondence problems and the children have all worked really hard on this new understanding. We have started writing our Innovated piece of writing in English all about Queen Elizabeth II, we’ve found out some really interesting facts about her that we didn’t know!


We have had a good week, learning more about multiplication and division, we have been using lots of different resources to support our learning.

In Science we thought about how different toys moved in different scenarios, we were thinking about pushing, pulling, moving, stopping and changing shape.

In English, we have been learning about adverbials and conjunctions while writing sentences about Mary Anning, Gertrude Ederle, Sacagawea and Coco Chanel.

In topic, we thought about where the Egyptians came on our historical timeline and investigated how they wrote using hieroglyphics.
