Welcome to Year 3!
We hope you have all had a lovely restful half-term holiday and are feeling ready to tackle the new term with gusto!
This half term in Year 3, as ever, promises to be a busy one, with lots of new topics and new skills to master.
We will be working on a topic called Mummy Madness this half term and throughout the next six weeks the children will be investigating what life was like in Ancient Egypt, along the banks of the River Nile. We will be pulling in links to Geography and exploring the concept of chronology – where this period in time stands in relation to other important events and time periods.
As usual, we will at times be doing some quite messy work this half term – including a project in Design and Technology that will involve realising a design using levers and pulleys. If you would like provide your child with an old T-shirt to wear to protect their uniform from glue and other nasties, please feel free, they can pop it into their PE bag so they always have it on hand.
Our PE slots for this half term will remain the same on Tuesdays and Fridays – although the way to avoid any disappointment or missed lessons is to leave the children’s PE kits in school for the rest of the half term and take them home in February for a good wash! They will need an indoor kit (shorts, T-shirt and pumps) and an outdoor kits (a pair of jogger bottoms and some trainers).
We will of course keep you updated with anything else you might need to know. We will use the Xpressions app to keep you informed of anything you might need to know as the term progresses and will update the website regularly to make sure you are kept in the loop.
So for now, enjoy the run up to Easter and please pop in at any point if there is anything that you want to ask, check or query – our doors are always open.
