Our first few weeks of Year 3!
We have had a very exciting start to Year 3 and we have loved getting to know our incredible new classes!
We kicked off our new topic on 'Ancient Egypt' by studying chronology, which we then applied to creating our own timelines. We have been learning what life would have been like as an Ancient Egyptian, we even tried some of the food they might have eaten. We baked our own honey cakes using caraway seeds and learnt that honey was used to sweeten food. Look at the photographs below to see our creations!
Our new topic in Science is 'Light and Darkness' and this week we have been investigating shadows using light sources.
We have been learning outside as much as possible, we loved practising our place value knowledge using mathematical treasure hunts! We have also been playing a variety of games to practise our mental maths skills- we are gaining accuracy and speed every day!
Thank you for all of your support, we are so grateful for the Year 3 community!
