Year 3 2019/20
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. We also have an exciting trip to The Ryedale Folk Museum planned for this half term, where the children will be able to develop an understanding of how people in the past lived.
During Autumn Term 2, Year 3 will be transported to Ancient Greece to discover ‘Gods and Mortals’. Here, the children will be exploring Greek myths and legends and imagining what life would have been like all those years ago.
After Christmas, the children will be taking a dangerous walk on the wild side with our science-based topic of ‘Predator’. Here the children will have amazing opportunities to investigate the animal kingdom in the world around them. Watch out Year 3!
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. Let’s hope it goes swimmingly..
As part of our final topic of the year, 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!
In Year 3, the children have numerous opportunities to display and grow their creativity through extra- curricular activities. Children will have rich experiences with music throughout Year 3; including lessons with Mr. Whawell, choir practise and our Y3/4 Summer performance! A host of other extra-curricular opportunities are available to the children during their Friday afternoon enrichment sessions.
