This week’s Learning at a glance

This week’s learning in Year 3 at a glance!

 

Year 3

Learning Link: Once upon a tomb!

As your children enter Key Stage 2 they will step back in time as we delve into the fascinating world of the Ancient Egyptians.  The children will have a wonderful opportunity to become fully immersed in our topic this term.

As well as a ‘Play in a Day’ workshop, the children will be researching and creating their own Shaduf; looking at The River Nile; linking the place value of digits to the ancient Egyptian number system; creating Egyptian headdresses and jewellery, tombs and so much more!

We will continue to develop our skills in computing and create simple algorithms and in science we delve into the topic of light.

In RE our rich curriculum allows us to explore the topics of ‘home’, ‘promises’ and visitors as we approach the joy of Christmas.
