Happy New Year

Friday 5th January | 2 comments

Welcome back and a happy new year. We hope you have all had a great Christmas and have enjoyed the break.

It’s very good to see that all the children have come back to school keen and ready to continue their learning and, even though it’s been a short week, they have produced some great work already.

Over the next few weeks in Literacy, we are looking at play scripts and how they differ from stories. The children will have the chance to write and perform their own short play towards the end of the half term, hopefully showing off their great acting skills.

The History topic this term is ancient Egypt. We will be learning about what life was like for all Egyptians, from the Pharaohs to the slaves. We shall also discover how they treated their dead and how this relates to the pyramids, the Valley of the Kings and Howard Carter. In art, the children will be recreating a death mask (although due to budget limits we will have to find an alternative to solid gold!). Towards the end of the half term, we will give the opportunity for the children to show some of the work they have done at a parents’ assembly – more details to follow.

At today’s Special Mention Assembly, Evie, Harriet and Nathan were selected for being great learners and Stan was chosen for being the best he can be.

Finally, just a reminder that homework was given today and the Maths is due back in next Wednesday (10th Jan) with the Learning Log back the following week (17th Jan). Please also remember that any learning at home should be recorded in the Reading Record books. The work can be any reading, writing or maths and every day counts towards the final percentage at the end of the week. At the moment, Year 3 are a little behind other year groups so please ensure your child gives you their book to sign.

Have a good weekend.

Mr Beevers and Miss Micklethwaite

    We can’t wait to see the death masks, and the play scripts sound exciting.
