Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Year 3 have made an amazing start to the new school year! They have settled in brilliantly and are eager to learn! It is lovely to be teaching the class again and to see how much they have grown and developed since teaching them in Reception! It is lovely to be part of their learning journey through the school once again! We have a brilliant year ahead and lots to look forward to!

Autumn 1


This term our curriculum for History, Geography, Art and Design and Technology is taught through our ‘Set in Stone’ learning. Where we will be exploring life in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages and how this changed over time. We have a very exciting trip planned to Compton Verney after Half Term where we will be spending the day engaging in some fantastic stone age activities such as building a campfire and tasting some traditional Stone Age foods! Don’t forget to look out for our virtual 'Come and Share' and 'Time to Shine' sessions, where you can get a closer look at our learning! 


Our English learning is based around the text 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszca. The children are thoroughly enjoying looking at this interesting twist on a traditional tale and are preparing to write their own alternative versions of a familiar story.


In Science we are investigating Animals and Humans. We have made a great start to exploring the Human Body, investigating different types of skeletons and identifying the bones within the body.
