In history, we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. We learnt that the Ancient Egyptians were very skilled builders and built pyramids to bury Ancient Egyptian kings and queens. The most famous pyramid is called the Great Pyramid of Giza and it is one of the wonders of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
We learnt about King Tutankhamun and the different artefacts that were discovered in his tomb, by the archaeologist Howard Carter.

Here is how he described the discovery in 1922:
Howard Carter and his team making the discovery:
Egyptians believed that when they died, their soul left their bodies. After they were buried their sould would return and would live in the afterlife. This was the reason for preserving their bodies and the process was called mummification.

Helping at Home
On a Thursday your child will bring home a home learning task related to something they have been learning during the week. This needs to be returned the following Tuesday.
Each week, your child will be given spellings on a Monday, to be tested on a Friday. Your child will be working on either Year 1/2 or Year 3/4 common exception words, alongside the Year 3 National Curriculum words.
This term, you will be given multiplication tables to learn, to be tested each week. Below are some links to help you with your tables:
There are many times table songs on YouTube which can help children learn them off by heart.
Your child will be given a log in for Times Table Rockstars, which is a fun way to memories the tables and compete with their friends. https://ttrockstars.com/login
They will also be given a log in for RM Easimaths, where they can work through different mathematical questions and problems. https://www.rmeasimaths.com/
Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
