Welcome to 3P

Please use our class page to find out about what we are learning and doing during the year.  More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the 'Curriculum Plan' which can be found in 'Files to download' lower down the class homepage.

Our theme for this half term is 'The Ancient Egyptians'


 In History we will be learning all about life in Ancient Egypt including all about The Egyptian Gods, Pharaohs, Pyramids, King Tutankhamun and much more. Our theme will link with a number of other subjects across the curriculum.  In Science  we will be investigating rocks and fossils and in music we will be creating Egyptian music.



. This half term we will be focussing on the book 'Snaggle Grollop'.





Through this book we will learn to extend their sentences with conjunctions, how to write in paragraphs and to use adjectives, verbs and adverbs to improve their descriptions.  They will also begin to learn what a sentence needs and to improve their sentences with subordinate clauses.

In year 3 we will have a strong focus on handwriting and spelling.  A list of year 3 words that the children need to learn to spell can be found at the bottom of the page in 'Files to download'.
