Year 3

Welcome to Egypt's page. On this page we will share the exciting things we learn about, the places we go and the events we take part in. Key information about the curriculum can also be found on the Curriculum Overview page. 

Teacher: Miss Miller

Teaching Assistants: Miss Hegarty and Miss Fox


The Iron Man

In the second half of the Spring term, we became scientists! We learned all about forces and we conducted experiments to see how surfaces can cause different levels of friction. We also tested materials to see which ones are magnetic.

As well as this, we became inventors and created our own moving robots!

It's been a very busy half term!

Rock and Roll!

This half term, we have been learning all about rocks.

We created a giant volcano and fossil, found out how volcanoes erupt and we learned about rock types by categorising chocolates into sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rock (can you guess which bit was our favourite?). 

The Romans

Our final topic of the Autumn term was all about the Romans.

We have learned about the impact that the Romans had on Britain, including finding out who Boudicca was and the bravery she showed against the Romans.

We also learned about the different countries that the Romans invaded and we even drew sketches of the Colosseum!

To end our topic, we wrote non-chronological reports to show what we had learned and to help inform others about the Romans.

World War One

How would you feel if you were a soldier in World War One?

We have been learning about the soldiers' lives in WW1. We created our own battlefield in the hall to develop our empathy towards those that risked their lives for us. We thought of a plan of attack, prepared our ammunition and battled until Britain won!

The Final Frontier

In our next topic, The Final Frontier, we learned all about space, shadows and light and dark. We made models to help us  understand how the Earth moves and we conducted experiments to see how shadows can change in different ways.


At the start of the year, we learned all about our class country, Egypt. We learned about the River Nile, wrote our names in hieroglyphics and even made our own coffins! After this, we did some writing to persuade people to go to Egypt by writing about all of the interesting things we had learned about.
