Our Visit to the Ashmoleum Museum, Oxford

Egypt Home Learning Project.


The children are going to do a poster on an aspect of Ancient Egypt which we will display in class.  They will be bringing home an A3 piece  of cartridge paper to do it on.  They can choose from three options.


1. The pharaohs - we have been looking a Cleopatra, Tutankhaman, Rameses II, khaman, Khufu, Hatshepsut., Seti.  They can choose to do one Pharaoh or several.


2. The Gods - This can be a selection of the Gods or just one god.  We have been learning about Hathor, Re. Isis, Osiris, Anubis, Set and Horus.


3. The pyramids or the Valley of the Kings (or both).  In the early part of Ancient Egypt the Pharaohs, were buried in pyramids but later Pharaohs, like Tutankhaman, were placed in tombs.


Can posters please be completed by Friday 21st June.  Let me know if you need the children to bring information home.  We have got lots of books and information in the classroom.  There is also lots of information on the internet, especially the British Museum site.

This Terms Spellings

Welcome back!   We hope you all had a great Easter break and enjoyed the sunshine.  We're looking forward to a busy and enjoyable summer term and can't really believe we've got here already.  Where did the time go? 


Our topic this term is "Ancient Egypt" which the children are already very enthusiastic about.  We will be looking at the key geographical features of Egypt in ancient times and finding out about the gods, Pharaohs, mummification and the structure of Egyptian civilization.  Most of our literacy will be linked to the Egyptians this term.


The Curriculum News for Summer below outlines all the areas of study in greater detail.


Staff in Year 3 this term

Teachers - Mrs McLoughlin (Mon-Tues)), Mrs Carmichael (Wed-Fri).
Assistant (Mon-Fri am) - Miss Nicholls.


Other Information:


Home Reading Records -  Please continue to read with your child as much as possible (even if they are a free reader) and record a minimum of 4 times in the Reading Record book.  This should be handed in on a Monday morning to be checked, and then it is returned to your child. If your child reads a minimum of 4 times for 4 weeks (these don't have to be consecutive weeks) they will be rewarded with a sticker!  Reading books will be handed out on a Monday.   Free readers can choose a book from our class library or read one of their choice from home.


Homework Diaries -  Please make sure these are in school EVERY day and signed each Monday morning to confirm that your child has shown you their diary.   Diaries should be handed in on a Monday and will be checked for a signature.  They are a great means of communication between school and home, and the children write in them often to send messages back from the teachers.  Feel free to use this as a method to communicate with us too.


Homework -  Maths homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be handed in the following Friday.   Later this term, there will be a project on the Ancient Egyptians to be carried out at home and details will be sent out shortly for this! 


Spellings - a spelling test will take place on Monday mornings and new spellings will be handed out on a Tuesday.


Cracking Times Tables – will take place on a Thursday morning.  The children are really enjoying this and are progressing well through the levels.  Please continue to make sure the children spend some time learning their times tables at home and that they continue to use Times Tables Rock stars as it's having an amazing effect on their learning!


Library - we will visit the library on a Monday afternoon. 


PE  -  PE lessons this half-term will take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons.  During the first half of the summer term we will have gymnastics on Mondays and games on Thursdays.  In the second half of this term, we will have athletics on Mondays and swimming on Thursday mornings.


If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to make an appointment through the office or send an email to  You can also catch one of us on the playground at the end of the day. 


Kind regards, 


Mrs Carmichael, Mrs McLoughlin, Miss Nicholls.
