Year 3 Miss Chandler

Welcome to our class page.


It's the start of a new term and Year 3 are ready to get down to business.


This term we will be studying the Ancient Egyptians. We will investigate what rituals and beliefs influenced life in Ancient Egypt and try to answer some key questions.

-Why did the Egyptians mummify the dead?

-Why and how were the pyramids built?

-What difference was there between the lives of the very rich and the very poor in Ancient Egypt?


Along the way we will create some canopic jars, build a shaduf and produce lots of interesting writing.


Manchester Museum has a fantastic range of Ancient Egyptian artefacts so please take your child there if you get the chance. It will definitely further their understanding of this fantastic subject.
