One Childhood - One Chance

14.03.22 - 18.02.33 Year 3

This week in year 3...

Another exciting week in Year 3!

In English this week, Year 3 have been writing a recount in the style of a journal. We have created a beautifully presented double page spread all about Marcy's adventure in Egypt, including conjunctions to extend our writing.

 In Maths this week, we have been looking at fractions.

In UBBC, we have been learning more about Egyptian life, the pyramids and the book of the dead. We have also had so much fun creating our very own cartouche with our name written in hieroglyphics on it.

Next week:

In UBBC, year 3 will be learning all about life in Ancient Egypt on our exciting school trip!

In Maths, we will be looking at fractions. 

In English, we will be writing a fact file about Egyptian gods.
