Year 3 denotes the start of your child’s journey into Key Stage 2. We aim to provide an exciting and memorable curriculum, which gives each child a range of experiences. Drama and practical activities are embedded throughout the year to provide the children with real life and first hand experiences. During the year we aim to continue your child’s progress as a lifelong learner by providing opportunities for them to apply and extend their learning from previous years and develop new skills.
Our year begins with a journey back in time to the Stone Age. In our topic ‘Stones and Bones’ the children explore the changes in Britain during the period of time from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. In our first trip of the year we visit Butser farm, an important area of flint mining in the Stone Age. Back in the classroom the children learn about the art of cave painting through forest school activities.
