‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’
Year 3 is an important year as it represents the transition from KS1 to KS2. The

crops. In addition to this, they also learn about Pharaohs, the important part they
played in Egyptian Society, their burial customs and beliefs.
