Welcome to Queens Year 3!
This half term we will be archaeologists searching for fossils and ancient civilizations. Are you ready to follow in the footsteps of Howard Carter rediscovering Ancient Egypt? Or be a paleontologist discovering evidence of the dinosaurs? Don't know what an archaeologist is? Don't worry because our first trip will be to St. John's Museum in Warwick to discover what they do.
Back in school we will also become timestable superheroes, Egyptian royalty and understand how to be a metacognitive thinker. In reading lessons, our main text will be Iron Man, by Ted Hughes. We will also look at Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo and Ancient Egypt, Tales of Gods and Pharaohs by Marcia Williams. Maths will focus on place value and calculation strategies.
Key weekly days:
Monday - bring your PE kits in. AR reading quiz and library day.
Tuesday - timetabled PE lesson.
Wednesday - timestable superhero test.
Thursday - Spelling test and homework due in.
Friday - New homework and spellings sent home. Take PE kit home.
Over the half term for homework, you can choose at least one activity a week, making sure that over the 8 weeks, all of the red English tasks are chosen.
Whilst we encourage daily reading at home, to get gold in homework, there must be three adult signatures and comments to show you have read to an adult. Reading records need to be in school each week.
Can't wait to see you all and your summer holiday homework with your adventurers on Wednesday 4th September!
