This week year 3 have been learning about how the Ancient Egyptians treated their dead Pharaohs! Visit the websites and games below to find out more. Comment below to tell us the favourite thing that you learnt!

Books, Books, Books!

At Clapham Manor our ethos is to develop the love of literacy through providing a wide range of text for pupils to explore and enjoy across the curriculum. We are incredibly grateful for the support you as parents and carers currently provide the school by volunteering as parent readers and attending our book swaps and book fairs. Some parents and carers have reached out to ask what further support they can offer the school, so we have put together an Amazon wish list of books that would be really beneficial to support the learning in class. Thanks in advance!

On Thursday 21st November, Clapham Manor will be holding a Black History Extravaganza to showcase the work we have all been doing for Black History Month. Year 3 will be performing the song ‘My name is Harriet’. Use the video and lyrics below to help you practice the song at home!

Spice up your life! (Remix)

Verse 1


If you’re feeling sad and low,

Don’t fit in or you’ve got no place to go,

Clapham Manor’s here to say,

Just be you coz different is ok!



Colours of the world (equality!)

Every boy and every girl (equality!)

People of the world (equality!)


Slam it to the left – being different is ok!

Shake it to the right – we are special in our way.

Shake it to the left – ha ha! be-you-tiful!

Slam it to the left – and we’re singing it out loud!

Shake it to the right – we’re all different and we’re proud!

Shake it to the left – ha ha! just be-you-tiful!


Verse 2


Any gender, any race,

All religions have a place,

Who you love or where you’re from,

Come join us and …..sing along!




If you’re old or you’re young,

religion or have none,

Whatever your gender or body remember…

Love’s for everyone! (Haka)  Love’s for everyone!  (Haka!)

Ariba!  Hahaah!




You’ve got a friend in me!

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

When the road looks rough ahead

And you’re miles and miles from your nice warm bed

You just remember what your old pal said

Boy you’ve got a friend in me

Yeah you’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You got troubles and I got ’em too

There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together, we can see it through
‘Cause you’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
Some other folks might be a little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them
Will ever love you the way I do
It’s me and you boy

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see it’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
