Welcome Back Year 3!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year! For the New Year, and the new term, we are starting a new topic all about something super exciting – Ancient Egyptians! We will be exploring the pyramids, the Pharaohs and trying to answer the question 'Were the Ancient Egyptians a civilised society like ours?'. We have a great selection of books that we will be delving into over the term. Our favourite five books for this term are:

  • There's A Pharaoh In Our Bath! by Jeremy Strong,
  • The Gruesome Truth About The Egyptians by Jillian Powell,
  • (An usborne flap book) See Inside Ancient Egypt by Rob Jones,
  • 100 things you should know about Ancient Egypt Jane Walker,
  • Who Built The Pyramids? By Jane Chisholm.

I can't wait for all this exciting learning,
Miss Holliwell
