Year 3

Welcome to Y3


Topics and Trips


Autumn Term

We start the year with a geography and history unit called Where in the World am I?  It will start with a location activity and map work task linked to our school and will build up to a piece of work focused on Southampton. We will also have a science unit based on nutrition called 'There's a rumble in my tummy'. The children will be designing, making and evaluating a healthy sandwich.  We also plan to teach a science unit about magnets and forces which is titled 'Feel the Force'. 

Alongside all the brilliant learning, the children also lead the school with the Christmas celebrations and will be perform and sing in the December Christmas Production. 


Spring Term 

We will launch the return to school with 'Let there be light' this is a science unit about light and we plan to produce a shadow puppet show to apply our light skills. 

Our main topics for this term are The Dawn of Time and Meet the Flintstones (The Stone Age). Through these topics we will cover rocks and soils, volcanoes and earthquakes.  There will be a visit Butser Farm to learn all about Stone Age life.


Summer Term

This term is always a popular one. We learn all about the Ancient Egyptians in 'Where's my mummy?' There will be an Ancient Egyptian Day where the children (and teachers) have the opportunity to dress up as Ancient Egyptians and take part in a play in a day activity. Ben from Treehouse Theatre involves all the children in a fun and interactive day. We also learn all about plants in 'Blooming Marvellous'. 


If you have any questions about the work or school routines, please speak to your child's classteacher or myself.


We hope you have a brilliant Year 3 year with us.
