Welcome to Term One!

 

​Topic

 

This term our topic is Treasures of Ancient Egypt.

Young archaeologists, get your magnifying glasses and brushes to the ready as we will be uncovering the history that lies in the desert land of Egypt. Our new topics offers so many exciting learning opportunities across the curriculum.

In History we will look at various sources of evidence that give us clues about what life was like in the past (how the Ancient Egyptians lived and what they believed).

In Geography we will be finding out all about the significance of the River Nile.

In Art we will be focusing on creating portraits using different mediums as well as creating our own Ancient Egyptian mask.

 

 

English

This term we will be looking at Fables. We will explore the features of these to produce our own Fable. Later this term, we will be using what we have learnt in topic to help us write a recount of the discovery of Tutankhamun. Finally, we will be developing our language skills and writing our own poetry.

 

 

 

 

 Maths 

During Maths we will begin to look at place value before moving onto different strategies for addition and subtraction. As well as that we will be starting to look at our 3x, 4x and 8x tables. 

 

 

 

Science

This term we will be learning about ‘Humans and other animals’. We will focus on identifying that animals and humans need the right types of nutrition and the importance of skeletons and muscles for support.

 

Things to remember:
 

Homework
Homework will be set on Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Children will be have both a reading comprehension and a spelling detective sheet to complete. Times tables will be set on a Monday and children will be tested on the Friday. Don't forget to use Times Table Rockstars to help you with your tables. If you have forgotten your login, don't forget to ask your teacher.

We encourage children to read as much as possible from their own books, school library and local library. In addition, each child will have the opportunity to change their own Home School Reading Book.

The children have all been given an 'Active Learn' login so they can access books online at home.

 


 

Pen License

In year 3, we will be encouraging children to work towards earning their pen licence to have the privilege of writing in pen in curriculum areas. If you would like to provide a pen for your child we recommend either a Parker or a Lamy fountain pen, otherwise the school will supply pens along with all other necessary stationary.

 

 



P.E Kits and Uniform

 

We ask that all uniform is clearly named.

We expect all children to be equipped with a full PE kit: shorts, t-shirt, socks and plimsolls as well as a jumper and tracksuit bottoms or leggings whilst the weather is cold.

Please ensure kits are named and in school all week as timetabling may change.

For swimming children must come equipped with a swim suit (boys trunks not shorts), swimming hat and towel.

Children with pierced ears should remove earrings for all PE sessions including swimming, and must have their hair tied back for health and safety reasons.

 

 

Please note: Swimming will take place in Terms 2,4 and 6 for Year 3. This will be replaced by Gymnastics in Terms 1, 3 and 5.
