Last term we learned all about the Victorians. We didn’t know just how much we learned from them that help us in our lives today! In that time we also did a very successful class assembly all about what we had learned. This doesn’t stop in class 3 as we have another jam packed term. We are going to be travelling back in time in our (imaginary) time machine to meet people from Ancient Egypt!

We will be looking at how people lived in Ancient Egypt and research various aspects of their lives. We will compare their life with how we live today and see if we’re happy to be living in the present day. We will also be looking at the many interesting aspects of the early civilisation including religion, pharaohs and the pyramids. 

We will use our topic to influence our literacy and numeracy lessons as well as our art and design technology. In science we will be looking at plants. In computing lessons we will test our creative photography skills and make a video presentation. More information is available in our curriculum letter, which you can download from the bottom of this webpage.

There is a lot to look forward to in class 3, including another class assembly coming your way shortly. We have an educational visit to Bagshaw Museum in Batley, where we will get to see what it is like inside a mummy. We are looking forward to that!

All there is left to say (as well as keep checking our class page for updates) is sit back, relax (work hard) and enjoy the term! Pictures will be available shortly. While you wait take a look at our pictures from our recent visit to the Castle Museum in York at the right hand side. We had a great time!

We would just like to remind you of a few things…
