Year 3 Team ready for World Book Day

Year 3 Team ready for World Book Day  1
Term 3

We had an amazing Ancient Egypt workshop. After dressing up and adding black eye make-up we completed many activities like those the ancient Egyptians would have done. We ground chalk into a fine powder that could be used to make paint and decorate the papyrus paper or stone walls. As no instructions have ever been found we tried to work out how some games would have been played and then tried playing them with each other using our rules. We wonder if we got them right and played them just like people during the ancient Egyptian times. Another skills was to weave wool through a loom to be able to create cloth, this was how they made the fabric for their cloths, we needed help to try and make sure it stayed together and didn't make any holes. Imagine if we had made clothes but they had holes in them! Using papyrus paper, just like the paper used in that time period, we wrote and drew spells that could go in our year group book of the dead. One of the hardest skills was trying to carve a small turtle amulet. This was placed inside the bandages when a person was mummified. We were using hard wax not stone but it was still very difficult to carve and make the correct shapes. We examined actual artefacts that have survived over 4000- years we shared ideas about what they were made of and what they might have been used for. We also had to work out which were the fake artefacts and the reasons why they were modern replicas, which we were very good at finding and explaining. Another skill was to weave reeds to make a small reed blind or mat. We all made our own amulets, to give us luck, using a nail we engraved a piece of metal with hieroglyphics of our name and patterns. We acted out an Egyptian story and finally became archaeologists to discover tombs, we learnt about the curses that people thought we put on the tombs and what amazing treasures were discovered.

This term we have been learning about "What a disaster!". We have been looking at the disaster of Pompeii and acting out the events which happened to cause such a disaster. Can you see how we were feeling by looking at our facial expressions?

This week we have been investigating patterns in number bonds. We have used our knowledge of number bonds to 10 to find facts about number bonds to 20, 100 and 1000. It was very tricky at first but with determination and team work... We did it! Well Done Team Salisbury x

The Boudica Story

The Boudica Story 1 The story of Boudica
The Boudica Story 2 The story of Boudica
This week the children have been acting about the Boudicca story. Through drama the children experienced how it felt to prepare for battle and used a range of vocabulary to describe these emotions. The children then applied what they had experienced, to write a detailed diary entry describing this revolt for a Celts point of view.

Welcome to Year 3 Salisbury Class!

We have been investigating the story of Noah - We have been thinking about what type of person Noah was and how these personality traits helped him to keep his faith in God. These are the words we came up with.

We have also been learning to partition 3 digit numbers and order them according to size. It was very tricky but we used lots of equipment to help us.
