Mummy Rap

A Visit from Professor McGinty



Today, Professor McGinty visited our class and took us on an exciting adventure back to the Ancient Egyptian times. We had lots of fun there, hearing stories and looking at lots of artefacts. Some of the artefacts we could touch were papyrus, scarab beetles, baskets for collecting grain and Egyptian bread. We even got to look at a mummified child and cat! During the day, we also made our own papyrus and artefacts made out of clay.



We are looking forward to starting our exciting topic this term - The Ancient Egyptians. Here is an overview of the key things we will be learning. 

Rainforest Animals

As part of our Design and Technology work, we planned and made 3D rainforest animals with a pneumatic mechanism. Working as part of a team, we carefully selected the materials needed, then made our animals, including a part which moved via a pneumatic system. Finally we carefully painted our models—we are very proud of them.

TT Rock Stars Launch Day


What a busy and fun packed day we have had at the launch of this year’s Times Table Rock Stars.  We all dressed the part and looked very cool in our fabulous outfits. Instead of our usual maths lesson  we played times table games and used the ipads to earn coins in our rock battle against the Owls and Herons.


We have had a very busy two weeks getting to know the Year 3 routines, developing our maths skills, creating some beautiful art work and hunting for dragons!

We have a wonderful topic to start the year - rainforests. Here is an overview of the key things we will be learning.


Our KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts)  this half term is to recall number bonds within 20. We practise our KIRFs every week in school and we will set homework based on it each Friday. Please support your child to learn and rapidly recall these key facts. There are lots of activities on the KIRFs sheet below (a copy can also be found in your child's homework book) to try at home.
