Welcome to Year 3, 2021-22.
Year 3 is part of Lower Key Stage 2. Mrs Paternoster (Monday and Tuesday) and Miss Blastock (Wednesday to Friday) are the teachers. We have planned a very exciting year for our class.
Our topic focus for autumn term is Ancient Egypt. Children will study this ancient society, dress, foods, societal structure, death rituals and of course, the pyramids! We will consider how these ancient people transformed the desert land to fertile farmland. This will entail a study of the Nile and how this resource transformed the lives of the ancient Egyptians.
The spring term will focus on Ancient Britain. The children will develop their knowledge and draw comparisons to the ancient Egyptians by learning about Stone Age Britain. We will look at the Bronze Age through to the Norman invasions. This focus will study conflicts, land use, settlements, kings and society.
The summer term will study animals and plants as a topic focus. Children will build up knowledge of plant parts, requirements for life and the cycle of life. Our focus will be about nutrition and what keeps living organisms healthy.#
