It's a History Mystery…

In Year 3 we have become Egyptologists! We received a mysterious envelope and inside was a replica image that was found in an Ancient Egyptian tomb. The children had to look for clues in the image that might tell us something about the ways of life in the Egyptian civilization. We also used the Chromebooks to complete research in order to create our own posters on different ancient civilization's, which we then presented to the class. Using all of our knowledge on these civilization's we placed them on a timeline and compared the time periods. We were fascinated to see that the Bronze age and the Ancient Egyptian civilizations' started at the same time!

There's no time like the present…

In Maths we have begun to understand the concept of how time passes and have been exploring the minutes in an hour, days in a week, months in a year etc. We learnt a great hack using our knuckles to recall how many days there are each month. I wonder if your child can teach you this trick? We then practised learning how to tell the time on an analogue clock. Don't forget we are holding a Summer Term Time Challenge and children can earn a total of 200 house team points if they can correctly tell the time on 10 clocks!

Our new text in Year 3 is the Egyptian Cinderella. We have been practising our inference skills and have been looking for clues in the text to determine how the characters are feeling. We have also been learning about the present perfect tense and simple past tense and have been putting these skills into practice when drafting a diary entry from Rhodopis' point of view.
