Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3 page.

Most of the work in the first half of the Autumn term is based around the Stone Age. Having looked at the key features of Stone Age life, we move on to learn about The Romans. We find out about the key characters in the Roman period and the legacy that they left behind. We also look at Roman life, studying the experiences of the rich and the poor in Roman society.

All of this work is enhanced by our visit to Butser Ancient farm where the children learn about the life of the Celts and have the opportunity to have some hands on experience with pottery and 'wattle and daub' workshops.

In other areas of the curriculum we look at healthy eating and the human body in Science, as well as adventure stories in Literacy. For this unit, we study the C.S.Lewis classic, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

During the Spring term, we finish our study of the Romans and move onto our first Geography topic looking at Water. We also explore a range of other topics including plants in Science and programming animation sequences in our Computing lessons.

During the final term of the year, the children learn all about Brazil and use it as an opportunity to study a contrasting locality to our own. We have a trip to the Lookout Centre in Bracknell where we have hands on experiences to complement our Science topic of forces and magnets.

All in all the children will have a varied and exciting experience in Year 3.

More information on the topics, homework and planning can be found below.
Year 3 Curriculum Information Video Presentation 2021-22
Please find below a link to the Year 3 Curriculum Information presentation. This is a pre-recorded, Zoom put together by the Year 3 teachers, with the aim of giving you more information about the organisation of teaching and learning in the year group. As teachers, we are not professional TV presenters by any means, but have done our best to share as much information in this way as we can! Despite many months of Home Learning, none of us feel 100% comfortable on camera so please do watch the video and then if you have any questions come and find one of us, Rachel Barker (3BF), Abi Friend (3BF) or Sarah Buchan (3MB), on the playground and chat face to face.
