Spring Term

In Year 3 this term, we will be enjoying studying George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. After studying the chapters, the children will be retelling, innovating and producing many pieces of writing, based on the book.

During the afternoon sessions, the children will be developing their historical knowledge and skills through the topic of Stone Age. To enrich their learning and gain a further understanding of life in Stone Age times, Year 3 will attend a guided educational visit engaging in many exciting experiences: cooking, shelter making and producing stone age pots. Look out for our photographs on Facebook.

Year 3 will also develop their scientific skills through the topic of plants. Through the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, they will use observation over time, classifying and many more scientific skills. They will increase their knowledge in this area and learn which jobs are linked to a love of plants and flowers.

Also, as part of our curriculum this term, our pupils will be excited to compose their own music, take part in dance in their PE sessions and develop themselves through our PSHE topic of Dreams and Goals.
