Home Learning – 5th January

Hi Class 3! I hope that you all had a great Christmas and New Year. I am sorry that I can’t see you all and have the chance to enjoy hearing about what you got up to during the holidays.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/week-1-number-multiplication-division/

 

Topic/English

Our new Topic is The Ancient Egyptians. To understand the lives of these people we need to learn about the myths (stories about ancient gods). It was their belief in the gods and culture that influenced the day to day life of the people. It their belief in the gods that made the Ancient Egyptians interesting. The story on the link below describes the most important gods. It is written in words and also has someone telling the story. Each slide of the story is read twice. 

https://slideplayer.com/slide/4676976/

 

Your task is to find a way of telling the story in 8 main events. You could divide a piece of paper into 8 rectangles and draw diagrams with a few words in each section to tell the story. We have done this before in class for the story of Tuesday and some of the Bible stories. 

 

Spellings

Your spellings are at the bottom of page 3 of the Ancient Egyptian word search. If you have a printer you could have a go at completing the word search as well (see below).

We will be learning about how the calendar of the church year is different from our normal calendar. Take a look at the image link below. Can you find another way of showing this?
