The Amazing Egyptians - November 2021
Over the last two weeks, Year 3 have been learning about the ancient Egyptians. First, the children learnt where this civilisation fits within the history timeline, discussing the terms BC and AD. Next, we learnt where Egypt is in the world, locating the River Nile and its capital city.

Let There Be Light - October 2021
Over the last two weeks, Year 3 have been learning about the Science topic Light. First, the children recognised that we need light to see. Next, we learnt that light from the sun can be dangerous, therefore we must protect our eyes. The children particularly enjoyed learning how light is reflected from surfaces and that shadows are formed when light is blocked by a solid object. Check out our busy learning in this topic.
