YEAR 3 CURRICULUM

Autumn 1 - The Stone Age

We will be travelling back in time to imagine what it was like to grow up in the Stone Age.  We will also spend some time comparing our lives now to what life was like then.  In art we will begin the year by looking at how painting has developed and changed throughout history, beginning with Stone Age cave painting and finishing by making Stone Age scultures out of clay.  We will visit Mouslecoombe Primary School where we will take part in Stone Age workshops. In English we will be reading The Stone Age Boy and basing our writing on this book and bears.

Autumn 2- Ice Worlds

In geography we will be exploring the Polar Regions.  We will be studying Arctic animals, their habitats and what it is like for Inuits to live in this environment.  Our English is based on the book ‘Ice Trap’. This is a true story about Shackleton’s last adventure to the Antarctic.  We will be writing letters, writing recounts and making television and radio broadcasts based on the book.

Spring 1 - Metal Monsters

We are going to be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. We will base all of our writing and reading on this book. In science we will be looking at forces and in geography we will be looking at The Level and how it has changed over time. 

Summer 1 - Romans

We will be looking at Celtic life and the Roman influences on British society.  We will be having a ‘Roman Day’ in school and a real Roman will visit. In Art the children will be looking at a variety of Roman Mosaics and creating their own. Also we will be looking at Roman sculpture culminating in the children designing and making their own tile.  Our English is linked to the Romans.   We will be researching and writing non-chronological reports about Roman life. 

Summer 2 - What's the Attraction

The children will be looking at forces in science. Using their knowledge, they will make magnet games for year twos. In English they will be writing instructions for these games.  There will be a big emphasis on transition and our children will be working with the year twos in maths as well as in DT.
