To love, learn and grow together

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Our new topic is called

Earth and Fire

This Autumn Term, Year 3 is going to ROCK! 

Well, we will be learning a lot about rocks that's for sure as we explore our new topic, Earth & Fire. 

Within this topic we will be exploring the prehistoric life of people in Britain from the Stone Age, through the Bronze Age and into the Iron Age.  We will be learning all about ancient dwellings, survival tactics and how new methods evolved to help people thrive in this harsh period of time. 

In science, we will be studying the different types of rocks and their properties.  We will use a variety of different texts to support our learning and our first book is the time-travelling tale of Stone Age Boy. 

Our art sessions will focus on the fascinating cave paintings that our ancestors left behind and will even have a go at making our own pigments!
