Welcome to Year 3!
Our project this term is ‘Were the Ancient Egyptians fabulous or foolish?’
We will be 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 Weston Park Museum in Sheffield where we will be ‘Ancient Egyptian Explorers! Later this term we will be visiting Beeston Lock and Heritage Centre to study rivers in the local area and compare with the River Nile in Egypt. We can’t wait to learn more about how the Ancient Egyptians lived and their legacy.
It is always amazing to see the wonderful project homework that children in Class 3 produce and look forward to seeing more of it. Please ask if your child needs any help or resources. We ask that all 6 pieces of project homework are completed before the end of term- it always best to get started on this straight away!
We would love to see lots of reading prizes in Class 3. Your child will receive a bookmark – as well as receiving stamps in school, children will receive a stamp for reading at home provided a parent/carer has signed this. There are 30 stamps per bookmark, when this is completed, the child receives a prize then moves to the next colour bookmark. There are 10 bookmarks altogether- in the seven colours of the rainbow plus silver, gold and platinum!
Your child will be given a spelling test and a times table test every Friday morning on TTRockstars, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. They will also have a ‘Maths Madness’ test every Friday. They will bring home their marked sheet so you can see where they might need support and a blank copy of the Maths Madness sheet to practice.
In addition to this, children will 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 pieces. Try to start these early to avoid doing them all at the last minute!
PE lessons are every Tuesday this half term. Please make sure your child comes to school in their PE kit on this day. A letter will be sent home regarding PE uniform which must be worn.
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.
