We had a grand time at our Halloween disco.

The Ancient Egyptians

In the Autumn term, we begin with transition activities where the children will learn about life at the Junior school and settle into our routines. We will also be discovering what life was like 3000 years ago in Ancient Egypt in our exciting history topic. We will be learning who the Ancient Egyptians were, their place in history, daily life, the importance of the River Nile and the fascinating pyramids. In Science, we will be looking at ‘Forces and Magnets’, comparing and grouping a variety of everyday materials based on whether they are attracted to a magnet. During our work on forces, we will investigate how things move on different surfaces. Design Technology will involve investigating and making levers and linkages during our mechanical systems work. In computing, we will learn how to log on and about digital devices. In PE we will begin with the fundamentals of movement before going on to practise our hockey skills. In other areas of the

curriculum, Year 3 will be starting to learn French, including greetings and numbers

to 10, as well as being able to say how old they are. RE focus is all about God’s covenant

with Abraham and Moses and in PSHE we look at our strengths and challenges.


Topic Launch - Ancient Egyptians

Year 3 travelled back in time to Ancient Egypt to discover the Tomb of the Temple Cat.

Science - Autumn 2023 - Forces

We conducted our first investigation to help advise the Ancient Egyptians on which surface would be best to pull a pyramid stone on a sledge. We measured pull force in Newtons using a force metre.
