Harbury C of E

Primary School

To love, learn and grow together

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

This term we will be continuing our topic of

Earth and Fire

The topic will have a strong focus on geography as we learn about volcanoes and earthquakes. 

During our English sessions, we will be using the excellent book, ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ to generate written outcomes such as diary entries, instructions, narratives and even Valentine’s cards for elephants!

In science, Year 3 will learn about light and how it travels.  They will also find out which different objects reflect different amounts of light and explore what causes a shadow.  This links perfectly to our DT focus this term - where the children will be investigating shadow puppets.

In RE we will be looking at the importance of festivals in different religions and continuing our PSHE curriculum by celebrating differences.
