This week’s learning in Year 3
Egyptian Museum Exhibition
We were really pleased to welcome so many Year 3 parents to the children’s Museum Exhibition. They were so motivated to share their learning about Ancient Egypt over the past six weeks and received some well-deserved feedback from their audience. We know many of them will proudly cherish their Museum Exhibits at home for a good time to come!
The British Museum are now hosting an exhibition until February 2023 about Ancient Egyptian hieroglphys, telling the fascinating story of how they were first deciphered:
The children were really pleased to be able to share their learning in class at this morning’s family Friday. The Year 3 team welcomed plenty of insightful feedback from parents; any queries raised can be followed up at our Learning Conversations in November.
This week has been assessment week across the school. Year 3 children have been assessed in Reading, Writing, Grammar & Punctuation, Spelling, Science, PE, History, RE and Music – quite a feat for them by all accounts! Year 3 teachers have been busy marking and recording the assessments and will be able to discuss what they have found out at our Learning Conversations with parents in November.
Responding to requests from some of our parents, below are a few links to some useful online learning sites if needed over the half-term:
English – choose from a large range of spelling, reading or grammar activities
Geography – research and make a fact file on one of the world biomes
History – build on your understanding of Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs to learn about writing in the Maya civilization of Central America
Spanish – learn some words for plants and animals in Spanish
And just for some fun ….. learn this song and dance Banana Banana Meatball
We hope you have a great half term and look forward to seeing the children again on Monday 31st October.
