Year 3 are learning all about Ancient Egypt this term with our Topic ‘Temples, Tombs and Treasures!’ Through the topic children will delve into the past and learn interesting facts about life during an ancient civilisation. Children will learn about Tutankhamun, The pyramids, life during Egyptian times, including jobs they did and foods they ate and Egyptian Gods.
During our literacy lessons we will be given opportunities to use our imaginations, innovate and create our own Egyptian stories and poems. We will begin by looking at the structure of a story, create characters and describe settings including interesting vocabulary and a range of sentence types.
Our maths focus this term is on Multiplication, Division, Money and problem solving.
In ICT lessons we will learn digital competency, online safety and the importance of secure passwords. Throughout the term children will learn about coding and how to save, send and retrieve data. Our teachers have told us we will also receive an email from Tutankhamun! This year we are going to learn all about green screening and will use QR codes in our books to show the great videos we create in class and all the fun we have during our lessons.
In PE we are learning the rules of team sports like hockey and netball and will be doing gymnastics. We are also going to be set special Egyptian missions and challenges using our Commando Joe equipment including; building pyramids and transport to cross the hot Egyptian desert. During all of our PE lessons we are going to work collaboratively and learn about the importance of communication and team work.
We are planning a fun trip to the Egypt centre in Swansea where we will see lots of Egyptian artefacts in the Museum and will attend workshops where we learn to measure like an Egyptian using cubits and will learn all about the process of mummification.
Year 4 are continuing with Extreme Earth next half term, looking at earthquakes to follow on from volcanoes.
Dance in PE is related to earthquakes.
