Year 3 2023 - 2024









Welcome to a new school year! The children have settled in brilliantly and are enjoying settling into life in the Juniors – well done everyone!


This term in Year 3, we will be learning all about the Stone Age. We will read the text Stone Age Boy in our English lessons and use it to help us do some fabulous writing – including letters, diaries and Stone Age fact files demonstrating all the knowledge we have gained.

We will also do lots of amazing art work; using pastels to create cave paintings like those found in the caves of Lascaux and making beautiful sunset silhouette images of Stone Henge.


In our R.E lessons, we will be learning more about the Harvest festival.


We are looking forward to learning all about forces and magnets in our science lessons and finding out where our food comes from in our Geography work.
