Year 3

Year 3

In Year 3 we learn lots of new and exciting things.  Whilst working hard we also have lots of fun.


Some of the topics we study are: 


The Victorians, including a Victorian Christmas


The Stone Age and we go on a trip to learn more about the era, we may even be lucky enough to meet a stone man!


Fashions through the ages, you will be amazed at how many weird styles there were.


Our Local area, we go out, do some fieldwork, and begin to learn how to use a map.


We travel further afield and investigate the Rainforest, and discover how our lives impact on it.


In science, we have fun with forces and magnets and become experts on plants and animals. 


Of course, we study English and Maths, which often involve lots of discussion and sharing of ideas.   We love to read in Year 3 and we recommend books for others to read. 


Year 3 are not only busy in the classroom but also out of the classroom!  They often get involved in lots of sports matches against other schools in a variety of sports.
