Year 3

Spring Term 1 2023 - The Stone Age

During Spring 1, following the excitement of our Horrible Histories event, we will continue to look at life in The Stone Age. We will explore questions such as ‘Were Stone Age people merely hunter-gatherers?’ and How much did life change when Stone Age people became farmers?’ We will try our hand at cave painting as a means of communication and will be visiting Skelton Grange to use our knowledge to survive a day in the life of a Stone Age person. In Science, we will be learning about different types of skeletons and investigating using our muscles. We will learn the basics of Karate in PE and in computing, we will be learning the concept of sequencing in programming through Scratch.

We walked up to Yeadon Methodist Church to see their Christmas tree display. We had a grand time!

Autumn Term 2022 - The Ancient Egyptians

In the Autumn term, we begin with transition activities where the children will learn about life at the Junior school and settle into our routines. We will also be discovering what life was like 3000 years ago in Ancient Egypt in our exciting history topic. We will be learning who the Ancient Egyptians were, their place in history, daily life, the importance of the River Nile and the fascinating pyramids. In Science, we will be looking at ‘Forces and Magnets’, comparing and grouping a variety of everyday materials based on whether they are attracted to a magnet. During our work on forces, we will investigate how things move on different surfaces. Design Technology will involve investigating and making levers and linkages during our mechanical systems work. In computing, we will learn how to log on and about digital devices. In PE we will begin with fundamental of movement before going on to practise our ball hockey skills. In other areas of the curriculum, Year 3 will be starting to learn French, including greetings and numbers to 10, as well as being able to say how old they are. RE focus is all about God’s covenant

with Abraham and Moses and in PSHE we look at our strengths and challenges.
