The homework project will be to create a visitors guide to life in Ancient Egypt - scrolls, maps, booklets - let your imaginations run riot!


  • Where shall we go on holiday - the Mediterranean?

This is a new topic. We will be finding out about the weather and climate in the Mediterranean, as well as learning how it is reported. We will do map work and look at life in a Mediterranean country. To finish off our topic, we will be working together to produce an advert for a holiday in the Med! Could you produce a poster to persuade your friends to go on holiday in a Mediterranean country?

  • Which came first, the seed or the plant?

This topic is also science based. During the term, Year 3 will be flexing their green fingers and growing some plants from seeds. We will also look at different parts of plants and flowers and do some creative floral art work. Our English work will be based on instructional writing, which we will also link in with computing to create photo stories.
