Welcome to Year 3
It has been great finally getting the children into school and getting to know them better.
Our topic for Autumn Term is ‘Adventure down the River Nile’, where we will be learning about life in Ancient Egyptian times and comparing it with life today. We will began by exploring where in the world the River Nile is located and it’s importance to the settlement of Ancient Egyptians. We will discover the secrets of the pyramids, how and why they were built.
Our English lessons will use Ancient Egypt as a stimulus for writing both explanatory texts and a fictional story about a Temple Cat. We will begin to learn how to word process in ICT lessons and create a moving picture in Design Technology using levers and linkages.
Our Science topic this term is forces and magnets where we investigate things that are attracted to a magnet and explore the force of friction on different surfaces.
In maths we will be looking at number, with topics on Place value and multiplication and division.
All Year 3 children will have PE on a Tuesday and Friday. PE will be outside as much as possible so please ensure the children have appropriate PE kit for the cooler days.
It will be a busy and fun Autumn Term.
