Year 3 produce some fantastic pieces of writing

Posted: 21st February 2017 | Category: Year 3

Year 3 have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptians this term. They have produced some fantastic pieces of writing including an adapted version of the Egyptian Cinderella (one of the oldest Cinderella stories) and a persuasive letter to Cinderella's master asking for permission to go to the Pharaoh's party.

They have also created some wonderful artwork; they carefully designed and then painted their own sarcophagi and have even tried their hand at drawing some hieroglyphics. They have also loved learning about the more gruesome parts of the topic including mummification! The children have been able to make comparisons with the Stone Age, their topic last term, and have been able to see how different civilisations developed.
