Year 3 Miss Millward

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.
