Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Mrs Wilde, Mr Barker, Mr Billington, Mrs Kruiniger and Miss Cole are our Year 3 teachers.

This term, out Inquiry Project is Tomb Raiders!   Year 3 Tomb Raiders Parent Letter

Scientists believe they have discovered an ancient burial tomb within the Great Pyramid of Giza. To help fund this new discovery, National Geographic have asked our Year 3 pupils to produce a recreation of the Pharaoh’s burial ceremony and screen it to an audience of potential archaeologists.

As historians, the children will place learn about the Ancient Egyptian civilisation, how its society was established and what made it successful.  They will then explore ancient Egyptian religious ceremonies and gain an understanding of the importance of religion in their society.  They will use their geographical skills and knowledge to understand the influence of human and physical features of the landscape in the development of this civilisation. In ART and DT the children will use modern techniques to create replica artefacts to be used in an historical reconstruction. In science the children will deepen their understanding of the importance of the Nile in Ancient Egypt by studying how plants grow and they will develop the ICT skills when creating an interesting multimedia presentation

Titan Class carried out their own archaeological dig to find some buried Egyptian artefacts.  You can see photos of their dig here:
