Year 3

7-8 year olds

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

Welcome back to the new term in Year 3. Our theme for this term is Ancient Egypt, and we have already kick-started the term of with a fantastic theme day.  The children all looked amazing and had a wonderful time learning about how the Egyptians lived and some of their beliefs.  We have lots of other exciting sessions planned including mummification, grave robbing and canopic jar making.

Our focus for Maths this term will be number, place value and all four operations.  We will be explaining and reasoning as well as problem solving in real life situations.  We will be using concrete apparatus and pictorial representations to secure our understanding.

In English, we have started the year looking at instructional texts and will be writing our own to explain how to mummify a body.  We will then move onto writing letters from the point of view of an Ancient Egyptian working on the building of the pyramids. Before Christmas we will be writing diaries and non-chronological reports.

This half term in P.E. we will be focusing on gymnastics and developing our skills in a number of areas including balance. We will also be reflecting on our own performance and those of others.  In our time outdoors we will be playing hockey and working on how to control, pass and dribble the ball as well as playing small sided games.
