The Class 3 Team wishes you and your family a very Happy New Year! We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and that Santa visited you all!  Thank you so much for your generous gifts to us all - we felt very special and spoilt!  2021 brings promises of hope...we've got this Class 3!


Our topic for the Spring Term is Eureka! with the values of wisdom and compassion under the umbrella of perseverance


We are still travelling back in time but to a different civilisation - Ancient Egypt.  We will be focussing 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 unit, the children will look at the impact of particular people and events as well as broader themes of significance, achievements, chronology and legacy with an emphasis on allowing pupils to consider the sources of evidence that form our understanding of this period of history and to make links to modern times.


The aims of the unit for pupils 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.


A creative cross-curricular approach will be taught through Outdoor Learning, English, Science and Art/DT to bring this topic to life.  A curriculum leaflet of our learning this term is in the folder - Information for Parents.

Times Tables

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. 

Many thanks,

The Year 3 team 

Break time snacks 


Children are allowed to bring in a piece of fresh or dried fruit to eat at break time. 

If you bring in a packed lunch to school, please make sure that it does not include products containing nuts, fizzy drinks or sweets; you may bring a small packet of crisps or a small chocolate-covered biscuit.

Children are encouraged to have a bottle of water in the classroom to keep hydrated - you should all be drinking plenty of water throughout the day, to help maintain your concentration!
