Topic: The Egyptians – Secrets of the Sand
The Big Idea:
This topic looks at the ancient Egyptians – who they were and when they lived. We will discover who a pharaoh was and their role in history. Case studies will focus on important Egyptian rulers including Tutankhamun. We will find out how pyramids were constructed and why they were important.

Every Thursday - Swimming
PE - Wednesday afternoon.
PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon and our sports coaches will teach this lesson. Children must have their full PE kits in school (please refer to the school uniform section of our website).
Children should be reading at home every night. They should be reading to an adult at home a minimum of three times per week. Year 3 children are still developing their vocabulary and comprehension skills which aid them in all areas of the curriculum. Please fill in your child's reading journal. Each time they read at home; either to an adult or independently, as children receive a certificate at the end of each term if they have completed 5 pages in their home reading record. The reading must be recorded for it to count!
The school day starts at 8.50 and doors will be open from 8.45. Please help your child to arrive on time and to enter the school building independently. If you would like to speak to your child’s class teacher, please make an appointment as this ensures the class teacher is able to settle the children ready for the day.
We welcome any parents who would like to volunteer.
Thank you for your support.
