Year 3

Miss Wayman and Miss Askey


Welcome to Year 3!


Welcome to our wonderful class!  In Year 3, we always try to do our best in everything we do - in our work and in our play.  We always try to do what Jesus would want us to do.


In the first half of the Autumn term, our topic was Ancient Egyptians! We found out all about who the Ancient Egyptians were, what the Pyramids were, who the pharoahs were, why the River Nile was so important, who the Ancient Egyptians worshipped and many more exciting aspects of life at that time.  We also made an Egyptian puppet using linkages in our DT lessons!

This term, our topic is all about North America!  We will learn about the geography of the continent and the states of the USA then focus on the different biomes found there, studying the desert biome in particular.  We will find out about the indigenous peoples of North America and explore some of the different tribes.  We will then create our own headbands using embroidery.

Our PE days are Monday and Friday.  Please come to school in your PE uniform and remember to remove earrings on these days. Please have your reading books, reading records and spelling books in school every day.
