Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 3 – Rowan & Elm

Welcome to 3 Elm and 3 Rowan!


Mrs Carter, Miss Godfrey and Mrs Troop

would like to welcome you to Year 3's website page.





This term, Year 3 will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We shall be using maps and atlases to locate Egypt before exploring important geographical features of the country such as the River Nile. Pupils will chronologically sequence the Ancient Egyptian period in relation to other major historical civilisations and they will be finding out about some of the religious beliefs, customs and aspects of everyday life through a range of fun and practical activities.  We will investigate the gruesome rituals associated with mummification - this is great fun and a chance for pupils to design and create their own mummy.  We can't wait to get started!


                                               Reading in Year 3




This year across the whole school, we are having a big focus on Reading. The children will be working with various adults in Year 3 to improve their word decoding and comprehension skills. The whole school are taking part in a 'Read at Home' competition. The children with the highest number of "reads at home", each half term, will be entered into a prize draw.  Pupils are expected to read at least 25 times to an adult at home.


Fabulous Homework in 3 Elm

Pupils have enjoyed presenting some of their wonderful pieces of homework.  We have been very impressed with the creativity and imagination pupils have shown throughout their work.  We certainly had great fun playing some of ancient Egyptian inspired board games and puzzles.
