Year 3

Welcome to Year 3’s Class Page

Welcome back! We are going to be covering lots of new topics this year, so please scroll through and see what we’ve been up to!

Our first topic of the spring term is ‘Flow’ and so far, we have explored how a river starts in the mountain and how it gets to the sea. We have learnt the 4 main parts to the Water Cycle and what soil types we might find near water (see our investigation of filtration below). In the next few weeks, we will be looking at the physical features of rivers, what animal habitats might be near water and have an exciting trip booked to the Canal & River Trust in Stourport towards the end of the half term!

In the Autumn, we have been learning all about ‘TRIBAL TALES!’ Going back in time to prehistoric Britain, we have explored the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, researching how people lived, what they wore and ate. In English, we have written adventure stories linked to ‘Stig in the dump’ and now creating our own non-fiction information leaflets specific to the Stone Age. In topic and art, we have made our own shields, tribal necklaces and cave paintings!

Our first topic this year is ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’, which as you can guess, is all about yummy food!
We have been reading different types of recipes and trying a range of foods.  In English, we used the recipes we wrote to make our own cupcakes! In Geography, we have been looking into Fair trade products and where our food comes from around the world. In History, we have been exploring the famous James Lind, who diagnosed Scurvy and found that citrus fruits can give you vital Vitamin C!
