Egyptians drew hieroglyphics on rusty walls.

Egyptians built the pyramids, tomes, palaces and temples. It took hundreds of years and thousands of workers.

Egyptian mothers looked after their children and cooked family meals on rooftops.

Egyptians dint have money, instead they swapped goods of equal value at the markets.

In Egyptian society everybody knew their place.

A king or pharaoh looked after every Egyptian. They made laws and lead the army in to battle.

Servants and slaves are at the bottom of society. They work incredibly hard for their masters.

Ladies looked after their homes and children, they loved throwing parties too

Spring 2 in Year 3!

Hello everyone and welcome to Spring 2 in year 3!

We have a very busy but exciting term ahead of us with lots of fantastic events like our inflatable Egyptian museum on March 12th, Corrie’s Got Talent March 26th and our brass assembly on April 1st.

Spring

Maths:

In maths we will be start by looking at Place value. We will then look at a range of methods to add numbers, including expanded column addition and a range of mental strategies. We will continue to look at time-telling on digital and analogue clocks, and the calculation of time intervals. We will then move onto subtraction of 3 digits by 3 digits and develop our mental multiplication and division methods.

English:

We will start the half term by looking at the story ‘Temple Cat’ by Andrew Celements. The story is about an Egyptian cat who is worshipped like a god, but longs for freedom and to be treated like everyone else. We will use the story as inspiration to create a poem about temple cat and his journey. We will then use the short film Tadeo Jones as inspiration to create diary entries about the discovery of an Egyptian Tomb. We will be looking at using similes, metaphors in our descriptions and begin to organise our writing into paragraphs.

Topic: Ancient Egypt

We will continue with our topic about Ancient Egypt and have our very exciting inflatable museum coming to school. We will be learning about Egyptian gods, Howard Carter and his discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb and creating some pyramid silhouette artwork.

 

Science: Plants

In this topic the children will explore what plants need to grow well. They will understand that each part of plant has a function and will be able to explain them  including pollination of a flower. We will set up an investigation to see how temperature can affect how a stem transports water. We will also investigate what plants need in order to grow well by observing changes in plants in different conditions.

PHSE: JIGSAW Healthy Me

Our theme for this half term is ‘Healthy Me’, where we will discuss how we can look after our bodies and minds. We will be setting ourselves a fitness challenge!  

 

RE: Why do people pray?

In RE the children will be looking the different reasons why people might pray in a range of religions.

PE: Games and Dance

In PE the children will have a sports coach every Monday who will be teaching them different dance routines. We will also be developing our throwing and catching skills in games by learning to play bench ball.

Music: BRASS

During our music lessons the children will have the opportunity to learn how to play a brass instrument with Tameside music service. Music lessons are every Wednesday. If your child would like to take their brass instrument home to practice, a deposit can be paid to the office allowing them to take it home.

ICT:

In ICT we will be learning about E safety including how to keep safe online, Blogging such as how to leave and comment on blogs on our school webpage and Navigating which will include finding the school website and logging into school apps.

MFL: French

We will be developing our language skills this half term by looking at colours and counting up to 50 in French.

 

HOME LEARNING LINKS / IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER 

We are also going to continue our different approach to homework in year 3 which has proven very successful in the past. We provide the children with a menu of choices for homework activities that they can carry out during the term. They still only need to complete one piece per week. They will also receive spelling shed and active learn homework every week online. Your child should have their log is stuck in their homework book. If you do not have access to the internet at home, a worksheet version of the homework will be available.

If you would like to email us your child’s homework please email to admin@corrie.tameside.sch.uk FAO Miss Wood / Mrs Akhtar.

 

Home Reading: Reading a school book is part of your homework. Reading books are checked every Wednesday and will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Your child’s reading diary must be signed before a new book is given and all activities completed (if applicable)

REMEMBER: all homework needs to be completed each week and handed in by each Wednesday to achieve GREEN for Homework in your Assertive Mentoring. If you hand it in on Thursday you will achieve YELLOW and after that you will achieve RED for that week. Homework is a vital part of your child’s learning and school provides homework club every night after school as well as homework support during Wednesday and Thursday lunchtimes.

100 Word Blog About Ancient Egypt by Oliver 3W

Ancient Egyptian life was mostly around the River Nile which was used for watering crops and transport.
The Ruler of the country was a called a pharaoh and they would order a pyramid as soon as they became king. The pyramid was to keep their body safe after they died as well as their belongings. Most of the pharaohs were buried in the Valley of the Kings. Before they were buried many important people and some animals were mummified and placed in a sarcophagus to preserve them for the after life. They worshipped several gods and cats were also sacred.

ANCIENT EGYPT by Zoha 3W

Five thousand years ago, the Ancient Egyptians lived in Egypt.

River Nile

The River Nile flows threw Egypt. The Nile was very special to the Egyptians and it was so important that they treated the Nile as a living thing.

Pyramids

There are three pyramids in Egypt and they were built in the city of Ciaro. The Pyramid of Khufu at Giza is the largest Egyptian pyramid.  Most Ancient Egyptian pyramids were built as tombs for pharaohs (rulers of Ancient Egypt) and their families. To date, over 130 pyramids have been discovered in Egypt.

 

Gods and Godesses

Ancient Egyptians believed in more than 2,000 Gods and Godesses! They had gods for everything, from dangers to chores! Each had different responsibilities and needed to be worshipped so that life could be kept in balance.

 

Make-up

Men, Women and even Children wore make-up in Egyptian times.  The eye-paint was usually green (made from copper) or black (made from lead). As well as offering protection from the sun, the Egyptians believed make-up had magical healing powers, too!

 

Mummification

The afterlife was very important to the Egyptians. They believed that by preserving a dead person’s body, which they did through the process of mummification – their soul would live on in the after-life forever.

  1. Wash the body with scented palm wine and then wash it off with water from the Nile.
  2. Now take out all the organs except the heart.
  3. Stuff the body with linen and then cover it with natron (salt).
  4. Then you need to leave the body for forty days.
  5. Wash the body again using water from the Nile then cover it in oils to make it look nice.
  6. Rap it in linen bandages and place it in it’s tomb.
