Year 3

Terms 5 and 6 2019

Our Explosive Planet

Throughout this term and next term, we will be learning lots about our fascinating world through our final topic ‘Our Explosive Planet’.

During this topic we will be learning about the amazing events that shape the world in which we live, such as volcanic eruptions, mountain formation and earthquakes. We will discuss how and why each of these things happen and explore the impact that these have upon our lives and the lives of others. We will also learn about the structure of Planet Earth which will be supported through our learning about rocks and fossils in Science during Term 6.

 To celebrate the end of our topic, we will be having a year group ‘Fizz’n’Quiz’ . The questions used will be based on the children's homework projects. This event will be for children only.



Terms 3 and 4 2019

Journey Through Time

Throughout term 3 and term 4, Year 3 will be journeying through time! We will be exploring some key periods of British history. We will begin our journey at The Stone Age then move onto The Romans and finally we will finish off looking at Britain during the Blitz. Look out for information regarding our trip to Dover Castle in April where we will have an opportunity to consolidate our learning from Terms 3 and 4.

We also look forward to welcoming parents to admire our projects at our project homework exhibition on Friday 5th April (9am).

Terms 1 and 2 2018

Life in the Freezer

Throughout terms 1 and 2, our Year 3 topic will be ‘Life in the Freezer’. We will be learning about the Polar Regions, locating these on a variety of maps and exploring the people and animals that inhabit these extreme environments. We will also be creating some wonderful artwork inspired by the Northern Lights, Arctic animals and the countries that make up the Polar Regions. Within English, the children will be studying a range of texts such as the fantastic ‘Lost and Found’ and ‘North’. Linking to Science, the children will also create Arctic animal shadow puppets using their understanding of light and shadows.

We look forward to welcoming parents to our Life in the Freezer exhibition on Friday 14th December at 9am. This will be a chance for the children to show off their homework projects to parents, teachers and their peers. There are no rules! for the project! Your child might like to create a poster, booklet, model, quiz or even make a video to share their learning. Be as creative as you like!
