Holly Hill Primary and Nursery School

Doves, Year 3, 2021/22

Welcome to Dove's class page!

I hope you've had a wonderful summer break and are all ready for a fun new term at Holly Hill. 


On this page you will be able to find photos of what we've been doing in class throughout the day. We hope you enjoy seeing what we get up to in class!


Please keep a look out for any new information or updates.


  • PE is on Monday and Thursday. Please keep PE kits in school as sometimes we do other planned sports activities on different days. If your child wears earrings, they will need to be removed before school or your child can take them out by themselves in class. 
  • We will be swimming every Thursday from the 9th September for 9 weeks. Dove class has been split into two groups so if you haven't had a letter this week, your child will be in the next group to go. (We will be arriving back at 3.30pm so may be a few minutes late onto the playground).
  • Spellings will be given out every Friday, and then tested the following Friday. Spellings will be stuck into reading diaries.
  • Please use reading diaries for any messages but for urgent messages, please contact the school office.
  • Children are expected to read five times a week at home, practise spellings and practise the times tables. Times tables can be practised by using TTRockstars. Your child's login details will be at the back of their reading diaries alongside their Mathletics passwords.

In art, we have designed and made Egyptian sculptures using clay. We chose from a range of sculptures- pyramids, the Sphinx, Tutankhamen to name a few. We had so much fun making our sculptures! 

Thursday 9th September 2021-PE

In PE over the next few weeks we are going to create an Egyptian dance. We began our lesson warming up to ‘Walk like an Egyptian’ using Just Dance. Then, we thought carefully about how to create different shapes with our bodies. We used Egyptian art to plan and present a freeze frame from Egyptian art. We worked really well in our groups. From all our work, we chose our first three moves for our own dance. We had lots of fun!


7th September - we have had a great day today for our wow day. We learnt about mummification with Mrs Fisher. We mummified tomatoes!! 🍅

Hieroglyphics: We wrote in Egyptian Hieroglyphics, writing secret messages for our friends to decode. We also wrote our names Hierglyphics.
