Year 3 Egyptian Day

On Tuesday 3Q and 3N enjoyed being Ancient Egyptians.  We made delicious hot dog mummies from tinned sausages and pastry.  This was the most popular activity.  Nearly everybody dressed up with eye make up and people wore headdresses.  After break both classes did a treasure hunt around the school.  One of the clues blew away in the bad weather then Finley found it.  We also practise an Egyptian dance.  In the afternoon we learnt about Mummification and how they used to stick a hook up the body's nose and mush up the brain.  It was disgusting!

Dates for your diary:

16.1.18 – Egyptian Day.  We would like to give the children a chance to immerse themselves in the Ancient Egyptian way of life with a full day of planned hands on activities.  We would welcome any parent volunteers to come in and help for either part or the full day.  Please let us know if you are available.

Some reminders:

Reading

Please continue to read at least 3 times a week with your child and complete the reading journal activities regularly.  Reading journals should be in school daily and will be checked every Monday.

 

Mathletics

It is important that Mathletics homework is completed.  It supports your child’s learning in class and gives them an opportunity to apply their knowledge in other contexts which encourages a greater depth of learning.  Please support your child in completing these activities and if you have any on-going concerns please do not hesitate to come and see me.

Times Tables Homework

Please continue to complete the Maths homework included in your child’s Maths Homework folder.  Homework Folders will be checked every Thursday.

 

PE

PE will continue to be on a Monday and Friday for 3Q.  There is a slight change for 3N who will now do PE on the same days Monday and Friday.  Please ensure your child has a complete PE kit in school all the time that includes suitable footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE (pumps and trainers) along with appropriate clothing for the cold weather (Tracksuits or leggings and a jumper).

 

Many thanks for your continued support.

Happy Roald Dahl Day! Wednesday 13th September

Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who joined us for our Dahlistic Art Workshop.  The children had a great time making Party hats, Roly Poly Birds, Dream jars, placements and BFG ears.  We also managed to create our very own Big Friendly Giant out of a range of materials who is now displayed in the hall with his dream jars.  The morning was a fantastic start to our topic on Roald Dahl and many of the activities could not have been achieved without the support the children had.  The children said:

“I enjoyed having my mum come to help” Chloe

“I liked using lots of glue” Belle

“I enjoyed drawing our own ideas” Alice “and recording my actual dream” Ellie-May

Maisie said “I enjoyed making the ears and looking like the BFG”
