Year 3


This term in Year 3, we will be learning all about ancient Egypt in History. We will be learning all about life in Egypt, hieroglyphics, the importance of the River Nile and much more!
We may even make our own mummies! As well as this, we will be looking at ancient Art from Egypt and comparing this with more modern art, such as the work of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Relating to Georgia O’Keeffe’s floral artwork, in Science, we will be studying Plants and Magnets.

This will include;learning about the functions of a plant, exploring how water is transported in plants and describing how objects attract and repel each other.

In English we will look at adventure/ mystery stories and will continue with our Talk4-Writing learning style, which we really enjoy! We will read a range of books from ‘Gorilla’ by Anthony Browne to ‘The thing in the Basement’ by Michaela Morgan to eventually create our own adventure stories, which will most definitely hook the reader in!

We are also very lucky to be continuing our Music lessons, that are delivered by Trafford Music Service, we are so excited to find out what instruments we will be learning to play.

This term we are restarting our PE lessons with Team Theme, which helps to improve our team building skills and coordination.

It is extremely important that children remember their musical instruments every music lesson (Tuesday) and PE kits (Wednesday & Thursday.)
