Eureka! The Ancient Egyptians

Eureka!  The Ancient Egyptians 1

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.

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!

Homework Guidelines

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,

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