Year 3

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 Egyptian Collars, Scarab beetle stamps, Nutella mummies, clay cartouches (nameplates for a sarcophagus) and cooking pitta bread and hummus. Phew!

We are excited to be visiting Weston Park Museum in Sheffield where we will be taking part in an Ancient Egyptian Workshop as well as. 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 medals in Class 3. Your child will get a certificate and a medal for reading at home – a bronze medal for reading 50 times at home, a silver medal for reading 125 times at home and a gold medal for reading 250 times at home. 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 Maths madness test every Friday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Children receive house points for full marks in spellings and passing their times table test.

Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned to school by 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– Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school each week.

Swimming will take place every Friday until Christmas. Our first lesson is on Friday 13th September.

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.

Thank you,
