Welcome to Class 3
During this term we will embark on an amazing adventure to the Land of the Pharaohs in this fascinating Ancient Egyptians topic. We will immerse ourselves in ancient Egyptian life, including finding out about the pyramids, baking Egyptian bread, creating Egyptian artefacts and finding out where Egypt is and what it is like. We also have an Egyptian day planned on 22nd May, which will be led by Discover History. Children can come dressed as an Egyptian if they would like to!
Our English will be taught through the Egyptian Cinderella as well as some other Egyptian fiction and non-fiction texts. We will continue our work on conjunctions, apostrophes and the past and present perfect tenses.
Following the Egyptians we will study The Minpins, making visits to the local woods to build vocabulary in order to enhance our writing.
In Mathematics we will focusing heavily on measures and fractions whilst also regularly recapping objectives already taught. Children will be given opportunities to practice for fluency as well as being exposed to lots of problem solving challenges.
Spellings - I am sending home lists of all of the spellings that your child should already know (Year 1 and 2) as well as those they should know by the end of year 4 ( 3 /4 word list). Please support your child with these as much as you can.
Beat The Clock - We will continue with our times table challenges three times a week. Children will bring their sheets home once they have completed them and can then practice further at home. Knowing their tables is essential, so please encourage your child to recite them regularly.
