Year 3 Miss Millward

Hello 3SM! 


I cannot believe it has been 3 weeks since we were last together. It's been a very strange time, totally different as life as we know it. I hope you are all adapting well and staying safe. I have been very busy with my children Lois and Ellis, who, like you are desperately missing their friends. We have been filling our time with cycling, walking and of course Joe Wicks workouts. What have you been up to?


Every Thursday at 8o'clock I have been going outside my door and clapping for the NHS. Have you been clapping too? It is so important to say thankyou because they have been working so hard.


I hope you are managing the work you have been set, just try to do a couple of tasks each day to keep your minds active. To try and help you through these strange times, we will be adding some weekly work. There is a suggested timetable and work to complete. I would love to see your completed work. Please feel free to tweet your work to @firsprimarysale or email it to me at Or you could show it to me when we get back to school.  Remember your Bug club and Mathletics log in should be in your reading record.  If you have any problems logging in please contact the school office. 


I can't wait to see you all again. I'm really missing you all. Be good for you Mums and Dads- It's tough on them too!


Take care and stay safe, 


Miss Millward

Go-To Art Activities

Here are a range of fun Art activities that you can try out at home! 

Welcome to 3SM


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


This term we will be studying ancient civilisations and specifically the Ancient Egyptians. Historical enquiry will be at the centre of everything we do in the topic, so strap yourself in and get ready to answer questions like:


-How can we discover what Ancient Egypt was like 5000 years ago?

-What evidence of life has survived and how can we study it?

-What was life like for children in Ancient Egyptian times?

-What did the Ancient Egyptians believe about life after death?

-What did the Ancient Egypt have in common with other civilisations at that time?

-How did a rock help us to read?

-Why did some Ancient Egyptians need a visit to the dentist?


Along the way we will hope to do some mummification, 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.
