Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Your teachers in Year 3 are Miss MacPherson and Mr Smith, supported by Miss Hallam and Miss Brooks.

Our first topic this year is Ancient Egypt. Learn all about life in Egypt 4000 years ago; the River Nile and how important it was to the Egyptians and all all about mummies, Pharaohs and the pyramids. We will also be visiting Weston Park Museum in Autumn 1 so get ready to meet a real life mummy!


Look forward to writing postcards, speech bubbles, information booklets and instructions whilst learning tons about Ancient Egypt.


This term sees us focus on the number system. Be ready to read, write and order numbers up to 1000, find more and less than a given number as well as learning how to add and subtract using the column method.
