So our year has finally come and what a year it has been! It has been a fun journey with you and as promised, this week there is no official work. So - play in your paddling pools, join in a board game, have a disco in the kitchen (like Amba's book!) bake lots, keep reading! I know!! I said no work - but it will help and for your pleasure.
Reports will be coming to your parents via email this Friday (17th). I am in the key worker bubble on Friday, so it will be later on in the afternoon.
Have a wonderful summer holiday, keep smiling, shine bright and always be the best you can be!
Remember to send me your photos/videos/jokes to: Year3@holytrinityprimary.org

Class 3 will continue travelling back in time to Ancient Egypt and discover other early civilisations. We will focus on the period between the time of the first pharaoh around 3100 BC to the Roman invasion in 31 BC, when Egypt became part of the Roman Empire. Across the topic, the children will look at the impact of particular people and events as well as broader themes of significance, achievements, chronology and legacy.
The main aims for the children are: -
To gain an overview of the significance of the Ancient Egyptian period within the wider narrative of world history.
To compare aspects of life in Ancient Egypt with life in modern times.
To study some of the significant people, places and events from this period and to explore how we know about them today.
To become familiar with historical sources and accurate vocabulary relating to the Ancient Egyptian period.
To locate Egypt on a map and look at some of their physical features and characteristics of their settlements.
The children will become Egyptians through art, dance and creating their own couscous meal.
PE will be on Wednesdays (Dance) and Fridays (Hockey - Spring 1 and Netball - Spring 2).

Mathletics and Spellodrome will be set every week on Mondays. A copy of the spellings will be brought home after the spelling test for the children to practise over the week. Additional Maths and English will be set on alternate weeks and issued on Wednesdays for completion the following Monday. Creative learning opportunities which are topic based will be issued every half term, with the expectation that two pieces of work will be completed.
Please read with your child everyday if possible, it is also expected that children bring their reading book and reading diary into school everyday so that we can monitor those who are and aren't reading.. In school, the classes will be doing guided reading and being heard by the staff individually.
We are very much looking forward to working with you Y3!
Times tables are really important in Year 3. The children have been learning times tables songs and playing games. Please revisit these as often as you can with your children at home.
