Year 3 - Miss Naylor and Mrs Crookes

Ancient Egypt is our focus this half term! 

Welcome Back!

This half term we are learning about Ancient Egypt!

Pupils will be researching and learning all about the Egyptian Gods, Pyramids, Pharaohs, The River Nile and Egyptian Geography!

During this half term we have a lot of fun and engaging activities planned! Pupils will be mummifying apples in Science. Designing and creating their own Egyptian sarcophagus in DT. As well as designing their own journals and exploring Egyptian artefacts in History!

Our books this half term also focus around the Egyptians. We will be reading the ‘Secrets of the River Nile’ and ‘The Scarabs Secret.’ Pupils will also research Tutankhamen’s tomb!

Our whole class book is ‘Flat Stanley; The Great Egyptian Grave Robbery’ which pupils have already enjoyed listening to this week!

We love to read!!! 

Pupils have been enjoying our Egyptian books in our story corner! 


Homework and Spellings are sent home every Thursday, and are to be returned to school on the following Wednesday. 

A homework club will run on Thursday lunchtime for children who have not completed their homework, or for those pupils who need a little help.

We are encouraging the children to read on a daily basis, for 5 minutes or 5 pages, as it can really help children progress in their reading. If you could sign your child's reading diary, it would be very helpful - thank you.


PE is on Monday afternoon and Friday morning. PE kits should remain in school all week.  Please can all pupils with long hair have their hair tied back.  

Forest School

Our Forest School sessions are on Tuesday afternoons. Pupils need to come with appropriate clothing and footwear for the forest area. 

We have our Celebration Assembly on Friday afternoons. 



Dates for this half term:

Friday 7th February: Class Trip to Bolton Museum to visit the Egyptian Galleries!

Throughout the year we take part in a ‘Battle of the Bands’ competitions with other classes in school!


We had a great time dressing up as Rockstars!
