Autumn 2: What can the Ancient Egyptians teach me?

This term, we will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians.  We will hear stories from lots of different characters and learn more about important discoveries that have been made by archaeologists. In science, we will continue to learn more about the human body and in Spanish we will learn new vocabulary about numbers and colours. We can't wait to get started.   

Week Beginning - 22nd November 2021

 

This week we have been writing our own rags to riches stories using all of our learning about the story of the Egyptian Cinderella. The children have worked really hard to independently write their ideas and use creative and powerful vocabulary in their work.

 

In our topic lessons, we have been exploring events in the Egyptian time period. Children have been creating timelines and using their maths knowledge to order dates into chronological order.

 

Week Beginning - 15th November 2021

 

This week we have created our own class versions of the Egyptian Cinderella. We have a made a story map and wrote the beginning of our stories using lots of descriptive language.

 

 

 

In maths, we have continued to explore addition and subtraction, focusing on 3 digit numbers, regrouping and exchanging.

Week Beginning - 8th November 2021

 

This week we have been continuing to with our story, The Egyptian Cinderella. We have created adverbs, fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases to describe the events of the story.

 

In maths, we have been learning how to subtract 2 digit numbers from 3 digit numbers using column subtraction.

 

Week Beginning - 1st November 2021

 

This week we have been reading our new story 'The Egyptian Cinderella'. We have been thinking about the characters and comparing the story to other versions of the traditional tale. We also used drama to recreate parts of the story, thinking about our body language and facial expressions.

Autumn 1: What makes us 'unique'?

This term, we will be learning about the human body and how it works well to keep us safe and healthy mentally and physically.  We will also learn to appreciate and recognise that we are all unique and are special in our own way. We will hear stories from unique characters and the amazing journeys that they go on in books like Flat Stanley and we will learn to identify what humans and animals need to have a healthy diet. You will also have your first lessons in Spanish (which we are so excited about!). This term will be full of learning and fun and we can't wait to get started.    

Week Beginning - 11th October 2021

 

This week we have been exploring black history as part of our 'Proud to be' topic. Children have had a variety of workshops and activities to complete. We have also had a visit from Panya Banjoko from the Nottingham Black Archive. She shared her poetry, life story and allowed the children to ask questions.

Week Beginning - 4th October 2021

 

Maths - This week in Maths, we have been using bar models to find the answers to addition and subtraction questions.

 

In art, we have completed our maquettes. We have used cardboard to draw our figures and then created a stand.

PE and Outdoor Learning 

PE lessons in Year Three will take place on a Thursday and Friday afternoon. PE sessions on a Thursday will alternate weekly with an Outdoor Learning Session. During the first week (which is a half-week), we will not have our usual sessions so this will start from the week commencing Monday 6th September. 

 

It is essential that children bring the correct uniform for days when they have PE or Outdoor Learning to ensure that they are safe and able to take part in all activities.  For Outdoor Learning, please ensure that children have waterproof clothing and wellies. When the weather does get colder, a hat, gloves and scarf. For PE children will need, a white t shirt, black shorts/joggers or leggings and suitable trainers or plimsolls (See below).

 

 

 

Here are the passports for both Violet and Snowdrop class. You will be able to take a look at photographs of your new teachers, classrooms and other key areas of school that you may use.
