Year 3 Current Learning.

Term 1 and 2 Learning – Were the Egyptians Really Good Inventors?

Our Enquiry learning this term is around the Ancient Egyptians and the children will be investigating the question: Were the Egyptians Really Good Inventors?

Please talk to your children about this learning and ask them what they have learnt each week as this will help us reinforce their learning in school.

Below is also our Knowledge organiser for the next two terms. Here you will be able to see what the children are being assessed against.

This term and next term the children in Year 3 will be swimming on a Thursday morning. This is an essential life skill that all children have to work towards and is part of National Curriculum’s PE syllabus. All children are assessed against whether they can swim 25 metres by the end of Year 6. With this in mind, the children will only be doing one in-school PE session (Fridays) this term and next term as the Swimming session makes up their other required allotted time for the week.

We are hoping to visit the Bristol Museum next term and are planning to get the train from Sea Mills to Clifton. We will update you on this over this term.

Please remember that the children need to be heard read at home 5 times a week and that this must be recorded in their reading record and signed by an adult. This will be checked each Monday morning. Children are completing the 2 times table in school this term and the 3 times table next term. It would be great if you could practise these at home with the children. There are lots of free apps out there for the children to use. This website list a few of them. https://www.educationalappstore.com/best-apps/best-times-tables-apps-for-5-to-11-year-olds

The children can also log into Their Times Table Rockstars account from home (app available) to complete games.

If you do have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak with any of us at the beginning/ end of the day for urgent responses/ messages or feel free to email us and we will get back to you within 48hours.

Thank you for all your continued support: Miss Brown, Miss Staines, Miss Burnett, Mrs Mullick and Mr Hunt
