Year 3

7-8 year olds

Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2 and our Year 3 class.

Ancient Egypt is the focus for year 3 over the autumn term. In order to add to the excitement for this topic, we visited The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, where we saw lots of amazing Egyptian artefacts.

Our Literacy sessions will link to our Ancient Egypt theme. We have already looked at Instructions to mummify a dead person, Letter writing - where we wrote a letter home from the perspective of a pyramid worker and diary writing. Our final units will be non-chronological reports in the form of a holiday brochure and a spot of poetry.

Maths will focus on number this term. We will be exploring all four operations and pupils will continue to build on previous knowledge and develop their understanding of both mental and formal written methods. Emphasis will be placed on selecting the most efficient method for any given calculation.

Our theme sessions have involved battling snakes, mazes and hieroglyphic puzzles to go grave robbing in the Great Pyramid of Giza and meeting Howard Carter, who showed us his most famous discovery- the tomb of the great pharaoh Tutankhamun.

In PE, Year 3 are very excited as they will be having swimming sessions for the Autumn term, focusing on stroke techniques, water safety and confidence in the water.  We will also be choreographing our own Egyptian dance to The Bangles song ‘Walk like an Egyptian’.
