News from Year 3

What a busy few weeks it has been in Year 3! From Holy Communions to mummification, we have packed a lot in. 

In History, we have been focusing on Ancient Egypt and the process of mummification. Did you know that the brains were removed from the body from a hook through the nose as it wasn’t seen as important to the Egyptians! We learnt more about the other stages of mummification and then acted out the process, all completed with wrapping each other in toilet roll!

In Science, we have enjoyed looking at plants and growing cress heads. We placed our cress heads in different places to see where they would grow best. We found that the cress heads grew best in the fridge, rather than in the cupboard under the sink!

We are also looking forward to our Sports Day today, even though it will be more like a sports hour. Please don’t forget to come to school in your PE kits to get that Sports Day feel!

Congratulations to all the children who have recently taken their first Holy Communions. Please feel free to bring in any photographs from the day for show and tell on Fridays.
