This week Year 3 have found themselves immersed in their new History topic, Ancient Egypt. They have created some fantastic pharaoh portraits and scarabs in Art using their collage skills. While in History they have used secondary sources to research some of their own questions. In English they have used their inference skills to ask and answer questions based on the story ‘ The Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo.
During Maths we have applied our mental maths and place value skills this week to answer mathematical word problems. We also enjoyed starting our cricket unit in P.E. with the All Stars cricket coach Tom and have started learning to play the recorder with Mrs McNamara.
On Friday we held a Mass of Thanksgiving in class. The children read beautifully and were very respectful. Thank you Mrs Joyce for your help and thank you Father Shaun and Francesca for preparing the children for their First Holy Communions.
Egyptian History Project
Over the next two weeks, I would like the children to research the Ancient Egyptians and fill three or four pages of their project books. They might like to research the pyramids, pharaohs, God’s, mummification, hieroglyphics or the Nile. Please return these project books by the 23rd June.
Reading – please log on to read theory and complete 20 minutes of comprehension and log your independent reading in your reading log.
Have a lovely weekend
