Y3 – Summer One Overview
Welcome to Year 3 our Teacher is Miss Lee. We also have our Teaching Assistants Mrs Chambers and Mrs Croucher.
This term our topic is Ancient Egypt! We will be learning all about the Egyptians and will be asking questions such as who were the Egyptians? and what was their life like? Whilst also learning about Mummies and Tutankhamun.
During English this term our focus will be on developing our writing and reading. We will be studying the books Egyptian Cinderella and The Time Travelling Cat and Egyptian Goddess which links to our topic Ancient Egypt. We will be learning how to write Non Chronological Reports and our own story based in Egypt.
In Maths we will be focusing on angles and turns within Shape. As well as money, time and measurement.
Remember to continue to learn your times tables.
6 spellings will be sent home on Friday and tested the following week. These will be the Year 2, 3 and 4 Common Exception Words or words with suffixes and prefixes in the National Curriculum.
As reading is extremely important in children’s education, we expect them to read on a daily basis which will contribute to their reads over the course of the year.
Homework books will also be sent out at the beginning of the half term for children to complete.
Physical Education: All children take part in a weekly PE session; this may be indoor or outdoor. However, this can also consist of working with a member of Nottingham Forest on team work and team building activities on Fridays.
Thank you for your support – Miss Lee
On Friday 22nd June we went on our school trip to Clumber park! As part of our Science topic on Plants we explored the Walled Kitchen Gardens and even got to taste some of the fruit and vegetables they grow. We had our lunch in the sunshine and then we split into three teams to take part in an Orienteering challenge. We had to work together to find the different posts using a map and compass, it was tricky! We all had a great day!
Royal Wedding Celebration
As part of celebrating the Royal Wedding we made Eton Mess and sat outside for lovely picnic.
