Welcome to Year 3!

As we enter the Spring Term, we step into Ancient Egypt.

We'll be:

  • Writing biographies about Marianne Brocklehurst and
    Howard Carter
  • Comparing civilisation in Ancient Egypt with life in Britain
    at the same time
  • Learning about Egyptian Gods and beliefs in the afterlife
  • Learning about how our skeletons work in science
  • Conducting our own mumification experiment - with tomatoes

All topped off with our first trip out of school.

An exciting visit to Liverpool World Museum, home to the second largest Egyptology collection in the country.

Have a look at our topic launch document below to find out more.

We've some fabulous books to work with: the Legend of Tutankhamun by Sally Morgan and Marcey and the Riddle of the Sphynx by Joe Todd Stanton.


General reminders

We have PE in Class 3 on a Wednesday and Thursday. It is important that we have our full PE kits, including trainers, in school all week, as sometimes we might swap a day or need to use our PE kits as a change of clothes. When it get's cold we still head outside so please make sure your children have jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt to stay warm.

Please name all the items of clothing to helps us get them back to their rightful owners.


Our aim in Class 3 is to encourage and support children to become confident, passionate and successful readers. 

Please read with your child at home as often as possible. It's good to read to them as well as have them read to you, it helps them to hear how books should sound and opens up lots of books that they might love but not be quite ready to read alone. 

Book bags

Children need to remember to bring in their book bags every day, with their reading books and reading records inside. Please check your child’s book bags regularly to avoid important information being missed and to stop them from becoming too full and heavy.


Maths is sent home every Wednesday, to be returned into school on the following Monday. We will also assess children's progress on spellings and target times tables on a Monday. Topic homework is sent home at the start of each half term to be returned at the start of the last week.

Working together

I am priviledged to be working with your children. If you have any questions or queries, I am always around after school, so please don’t hesitate to come in and see me (or call me via the office if you aren't picking up), you are always welcome!
