The children started this half term planning and writing non-chronological reports. We read non-chronological reports about Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. Year 3 then used these to inspire their own non-chronological reports about an Egyptian god or goddess that they had created. They produced some excellent pieces of writing and we are very proud of their work. 

Our next unit is ‘Tales of Quest’ where we are writing our own Greek myths. We have been reading Theseus and the Minotaur. We are using this story to help plan and write our own Greek myths. The children have had some great ideas and have been doing some brilliant writing.

We learnt to convert centimetres into metres and metres into kilometres.  In mass we learnt how to read scales in kilograms and grams and looked at how to calculate the value of increments on the scale. We learnt to measure volume in millilitres and litres.
