Year 3

Welcome to Spring Term in Year 3!

We are thrilled to announce our exciting project for the Spring term: “Were the Ancient Egyptians Fabulous or Foolish?”

In history, we’ll dive deep into the world of the Ancient Egyptians. Have you ever wondered who they were and when they lived? During this topic, we’ll explore their beliefs, discover how they built the pyramids, and even investigate the fascinating yet gruesome process of preparing a body for the afterlife.

For geography, we’ll be focusing on rivers, with the Nile taking centre stage. In Design and Technology, our young scholars will get creative with textiles to design an Egyptian money container.

Reading will play a key role in our exploration of Ancient Egypt, with a wide range of non-fiction and fictional texts lined up, including ‘Phantom and the Nile’ and ‘The daily lives of Ancient Egyptians’.

Get ready for some action-packed P.E. sessions too, with a specialist coach joining us every Wednesday. Don’t forget to rock your P.E. kit on those days!

Parents, we’re eager to see the amazing project homework that will be coming our way. Remember, your child should complete up to 6 Project Homework tasks over the term, in addition to their weekly homework. Feel free to ask for any help or resources your child may need.

Please ensure that you listen to your child read at least three times a week and record every reading session in their reading diary. We will keep a record of this. Each time your child reads at home, they will receive a stamp on their bookmark. Completing 30 stamps will earn them a prize from Mrs Salmeron.

Your child will bring home weekly spellings, it is really important children continue to practice these at home.

Lastly, we can’t stress enough how vital times tables are. Below, we’ve linked some fantastic websites that can really help boost your child’s times table knowledge. Let’s make learning fun and rewarding!

Join us on this incredible journey through the wonders of Ancient Egypt. It’s going to be an unforgettable term!
