Year 3 2018/19
Welcome to our Year 3 page! Year 3 is an incredibly exciting year for the children as they begin their Key Stage 2 adventure.
Throughout Year 3, the children will experience many amazing learning opportunities through a creative and engaging curriculum. We have already stepped back in time to the Stone Age, learning through the Cornerstones curriculum of ‘Tribal Tales’ to discover how we as humans have evolved over time. Our classroom has been transformed into a cave for children to investigate tribal art, we have dissected caveman faeces to discover their diet and created a 3 – course Stone Age feast!
After Christmas, Year 3 will be transported to the magical world of a chocolate factory, through our mouth-watering topic, ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’. It’s going to be sweet!
We will follow this by ‘going with the flow’. Children will learn all about local and world rivers. This project develops children’s knowledge of river locations, river formation, the water cycle and how to conduct accurate fieldwork. Here’s hoping it goes swimmingly…
In Year 3, the children have numerous opportunities to display and grow their creativity and extra curricular activities. Like music to my ears. Children will have rich experiences with music throughout Year 3 including lessons with Mr. Whawell, recorder club on a Wednesday lunch time, choir practise and our Y3/4 Summer performance! A host of other extracurricular opportunities are available to the children during their Friday afternoon enrichment sessions.
