Year 3 curriculum update

It has been a busy end to the term in Year 3!

Last Friday we travelled back in time to Ancient Egypt for our Egyptian day. The children took part in a range of activities including making canopic jars out of clay, designing their own cartouche by writing their name in hieroglyphics, and baking then tasting bread and other traditional Egyptian snacks.

The children were then able to show off some if their Ancient Egyptian knowledge by setting up a museum for our Open Afternoon on Wednesday. The museum was full of artefacts that the children had carefully researched and written information labels for.

This term the children have really enjoyed learning to play the keyboards with Mrs Cook from Hampshire’s Listen2Me. On Wednesday, the children performed a keyboard concert where they played seven different songs that they had learnt, some of which included singing and playing at the same time!

In maths this past week, we have been looking at interpreting data from tally charts and bar graphs. This was a useful skill to learn leading into Charity Day as some children were then able to create a bar graph from the results of our sponsored welly throw! There were some impressive distances thrown and hopefully a lot of money will be raised for this year’s three chosen charities.

We wish Year 3 a good rest over the Easter break and look forward to an exciting Summer term!
