PE is every Wednesday and Friday.

w/e  15th November 2019: 
We’re enjoying being back in Term 2 and have been busy with our Ancient Egyptians topic; making animal toys from clay, mummifying one of our TAs and writing instructions about how to make a mummy!

Next week - Term 2, Week 3:
In Maths, we will be continuing our work on multiplication and division, focusing on the 4 times table. Key vocabulary includes: multiply, divide, product, groups of, equal groups, times, split, shared into.

In English, we are starting a new unit on myths, looking specifically at the Egyptian myth of Isis and Osiris. Our toolkit for this unit of work is: using the correct tense, using pronouns to avoid repeating nouns, sentences of three for description and similes.  

In spelling, we will move on to our next spelling pattern which is: words ending in -tion e.g. action.

Please continue to practise your spellings in your homework book and there is also a short times table sheet to consolidate our maths from this week.

We would also like children to spend some time researching an Ancient Egyptian God or Goddess (they will have the name of their subject in their homework books) and find out three facts about them to bring into school on Monday if possible please. This will feed into our computing lessons next week.

If you have bought your own recorder, please remember to bring it in on Mondays (labelled with your child’s name!) * C1 will not have recorders on Monday next week.

Have a lovely weekend,

The Year 3 team
