Topaz class

Welcome to Topaz Class, Year 3!


Our Topic Question this half-term is:


The Ancient Egyptians

We kicked off our new topic by immersing ourselves in the world of Ancient Egypt for our WOW day!
During the day the children had the opportunity to visit an Ancient Egyptian market-place of activities including: making Ankh models out of clay, carving scarab beetles into soap, performing an Egyptian play, designing and painting Egyptian style make up, building pyramids from nets and practising our skills as scribes by writing hieroglyphics onto real Papyrus. On top of this the children also enjoyed taking on the roles of pharaohs and slaves to enjoy an entertaining Ancient Egyptian feast whilst enjoying foods which were once enjoyed by the Ancient Egyptians. Thank you to all parents/carers for your support in making our WOW day a success!
Carrying on from this the children will be using their historical, computing and art skills to inquire further into the life of the Ancient Egyptians this half term. 
We are also looking forward to continuing our investigations at The Fitzwilliam Museum on Friday 9th March. 
We will be continuing French lessons which will be taught by a visiting Teacher from the Parkside Federation on a Wednesday afternoon.
This half-term indoor PE will be on Mondays and outdoor PE will be on Thursdays– please make sure you have your P.E. kit in school. Please also remember a named water bottle.
