Everyone Valued, Everyone Learning

Welcome to the website for Prae Wood Primary School

Welcome to Hawthorn Class

Staff in Year 3 Hawthorn are: 

Miss Adams (Class teacher - Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) 

Mrs Paine (Class teacher - Tuesday) 

Mrs Hewitt (Teaching assistant - Monday- Friday) 

Mrs Wootton (AM) and Mrs Gardner (PM) (Learning support assistants)

This half term our topic is..... THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS! 

We completed our immersion activity on Friday afternoon. Miss Adams was very impressed as we already knew lots of interesting facts, for example some of us knew: 

The pyramids were built by the Ancient Egyptians. 

The Egyptians used papyrus to write on. 

They buried their pharaohs in caskets and placed them in a pyramid. 

Tutankhamun was a famous pharaoh. 


So we have decided we would like to find out: 

What was the name of the person who invented the pyramids? 

Why do they have mummies? 

What is a sarcophagus? 

What did the Ancient Egyptians do for fun? 

Did children in Ancient Egypt have to go to school? 

What did they eat and drink? 

Our Ancient Egyptian workshop will take place on Wednesday 23rd October! Please come dressed up in an appropriate costume!
