Mrs Howe 

 Welcome to Year Three! We are so pleased that you have taken time to look at our page. In it you will find lots of information about Year Three.

Autumn Term: Ancient Egypt

We have some exciting learning in our Autumn Term.  We start in Science by learning all about the human body and how we move and keep healthy.  We also learn all about light with lots of fun experiments.  Then we have Geography where we are learning more about maps and what they tell us about places in the world.  In History we will learn all about Ancient Egypt - pharaohs, mummies, pyramids .... there is so much to explore. Our Art topic focuses on structure and we will be using card to create some familiar buildings and we end the term with DT where our topic is cooking and we will be making bread and a healthy lunch and maybe even a Christmas treat!

Spring Term: The Savage Stone Age

We go further back in time in the Spring Term - back to the Stone Age! In Science we have lots of investigation work to do as we learn about plants before we move on to Geography where we learn ore about the world focusing on the different hemispheres.  We will be getting out and about to explore using maps and creating our own maps. In our History topic we will consider what it was like to live in the Stone age - they didn't have X-boxes or Playstations!! Cezanne and his still life work is the inspiration for our art topic before we move onto DT where we will be revisiting and improving our sewing skills.

Summer Term: Roman Invasion and Extreme Earth

 Our topic for the Summer Term is the Romans and their invasion. Through our History study we will be learning more about what life was like in Britain during the Roman invasion and how it changed our lives. Rocks and Forces and Magnets will be our Science areas of inquiry this term.  In Geography we learn about extreme weather conditions including Volcanos, earthquakes and Tsunamis which is a very exciting topic.  We might even make our own mini volcanoes!! We will definitely paint our own volcanoes when we study warm colours and the volcano art of William Turner.

English texts and learning will focus around the topics above, giving the children an immersive experience and chance to deepen their understanding across the curriculum.
 

 Timetable

 

PE

Our new exciting P.E. curriculum will take place on Thursday, we will have 2 sessions of P.E. that day, one with ASM.  The children need to wear their P.E. kit to school on a Thursday, black/navy joggers/shorts, the school logo PE shirt and school jumpers and school shoes throughout the day. Indoor or outdoor shoes to be brought in each week depending on the topic. During the Autumn term please provide pumps for dance and gymnastics weekly. Earrings will not be allowed in for PE. If your child is unable to take out their own earrings, then please take them out before school. Children with earrings will not be allowed to take part in the PE sessions and we don't want anyone to miss out. 

Music

On a Tuesday we will continue to have expert music tuition from In Harmony.  We will be developing our musical skills through class tuition and Orchestra sessions.
