Welcome to Year 3!
Our project this term is ‘Were the Ancient Egyptians fabulous or foolish?’
We have been hooked into our project by making mummies, cartouches (nameplates for a sarcophagus) out of clay, making Egyptian collars, pyramids and death masks! We are excited to be visiting Birmingham Museum where we will be ‘Ancient Egyptian Explorers! Later this term we also hope to be visiting rivers in the local area to compare with the River Nile in Egypt. We can’t wait to learn more about how the Ancient Egyptians lived and their legacy.
Already we have been amazed to see the wonderful project homework that children in Class 3 have been producing and look forward to seeing more of it. Please ask if your child needs any help or resources.
We would love to see lots of reading prizes in Class 3. Your child will receive a bookmark – for reading 75 times at home, a Southwold mug for reading 150 times at home and a ‘Book from the Box for reading 250 times at home and a store voucher for reading 350 times! Please listen your child read between 3 and 5 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record.
Your child will be given a spelling test and a times table test every Friday morning on TT Rockstars, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. They will also have a ‘Maths Madness’ test and a maths sheet to take home. Children receive house points for full marks in spellings.
Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned to school the following Thursday. They also have 6 pieces of project homework to complete. We love to see these as they are always amazing – they go straight up on our project homework display in the classroom for everybody to see. You have until the end of term to complete all six.
PE lessons are every Tuesday. Please make sure your child comes to school in their PE kit on this day.
If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please do not hesitate to come and see us.
