Our theme for the Autumn term is 'The Ancient Egyptians'.


There will be lots of engaging and exciting learning happening in our classrooms this term.

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.
Science: We will be investigating the skeleton and exploring the process of mummification.
Art: We will be researching, designing and creating our own press prints to create our name in hieroglyphics.



In English we will be focusing on the book- The Tale of Two Beasts by Fiona Roberton.


Through this book we will learn how to write noun phrases, use verbs, adverbs and adjectives to enhance sentences and begin to write in paragraphs. 

Through the writing opportunities that we provide this half term the children will learn to: 

  • Use adjectives
  • Use adverbs
  • Use a thesaurus
  • Write to describe
  • Use commas correctly
  • Gather ideas to plan writing
  • Write a list, focussing on the use of colons and bullet points
  • Write instructions, using adverbs and adjectives effectively
  • Redraft work, focusing on areas for improvement
  • Write a diary entry from different perspectives


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'.                     




In maths the children

phrases to open sentences will develop their ability and knowledge in the following concepts.  Through a mastery style of teaching the children will develop their fluency in these areas as well as an ability to reason and problem solve using this knowledge.

Times tables:

As children are required to know their multiplication tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4, a key area of focus is to develop our multiplication tables knowledge and become times table superstars! Strong multiplication table knowledge is crucial in many areas of maths and children should be able to recall these quickly and confidently. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. Please enjoy exploring the times table activities below:
