Year 3 Miss Millward





Hello Year 3, 

I hope you are enjoying a break from home learning and having fun in the sun. I bet you’ve had your paddling pools out too? We have been going on lots of walks, especially in the evening when it seems to be much cooler. I am now a pro on my bike too!

We seem to be living through some very important historical events at the moment. History was made when SpaceX (Elon Musk’s company) sent NASA astronauts into space from the same launch pad in Florida as the Apollo 11 Moon landings of the 1960’s. The craft, named Crew Dragon, blasted off at 20:22 heading to the International Space Station. It was carrying two American astronauts, Doug Hurley and Robert Behken, who were launched into space at a speed of over 17,000 miles per hour. If you were lucky then you might have caught sight of the rocket as it orbited the Earth for the second time just after 10pm. We couldn’t see it- did you? They have made it onto the Space Station and you can watch their interview as they docked on the BBC website. 

Mr Silk and I will be uploading more tasks onto our class page this week. Remember, there are some great websites if you run out of tasks. Bitesize has been fantastic! If you are struggling to complete tasks, I suggest reading a book. I would be so pleased if you could keep on reading.

I know it has been such a long time away from school, we must keep going and trying to keep busy. I miss you all so much and cannot wait to see you all again.


Love from Miss Millward


This week we would like you to recap on anything that you are still unsure about. Maybe you're having a wobble with telling the time or want to practise methods of subtraction again? 

We have attached a list of useful links for you to access online lessons and resources for all subjects. We have also provided you with a few Spanish lessons which you will find attached as 'Topic planning.' We hope you enjoy exploring the fun activities. 

Happy learning smiley

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.
