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.

 

Welcome to the new school year. smiley  This term our topic is Ancient Egypt - a particular favourite of many children! We will be locating Egypt on a world map and discussing the continents of the world. We will be learning how the River Nile was vital to the life of the Egyptians and why pyramids were built. We will learn about mummification, ancient Gods and Goddesses and about daily Egyptian life. In art we will be making our own Egyptian inspired amulets using clay. Reading is a whole school priority this year - with lots of fun activities and class texts to enjoy. Please encourage your child to read at home as much as possible and sign their diary to let us know how they are getting on. See some of our favourite books below....

                                               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. We are raising the profile of reading even further by sharing a whole Key Stage Two book, which we are discussing in our classroom and in Monday assemblies with Mr. Hillier.

 

We are currently reading 'Pax' by Sara Pennypacker.

We had lots of laughter and proud smiles during our first homework celebration. It was lovely to see the children being very creative at home this year and showing such enthusiasm for our topic on Ancient Egyptians. We particular enjoyed the fact files in 3 Rowan, with their very interesting multiple choice options!

Fabulous Homework in 3 Elm

Pupils have enjoyed presenting some of their wonderful pieces of homework this week.  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.
