Welcome to Year 3! This year, Mrs Robinson and Miss Kessey (3KR) and Mr Irfan (3I) along with Mrs Petts, have many exciting opportunities planned for our children. We look forward to a great year full of progress, growth and fun!


Our topics in Year 3 are

Autumn 1 – Tribal Tales

Head back to a prehistoric time times (it’s a long time ago) to gather berries and hunt down dinner. Unearth ancient objects and visit astonishing mythical monuments that reveal the secrets of an ancient time.

Autumn 2- Gods and Mortals

Epic clashes between humanity and gods, fearsome beasts and handsome heroes are all to be found in our Gods and Mortals Topic. Learn about Ancient Greece through the myths and Legends of Zeus and Theseus.

Spring 1- Tremors

From violent volcanoes to earth-shattering earthquakes, the terrifying Tremors is the most exciting yet! We will learn about the geography of our planet by exploring how islands and continents form, and how volcanoes help life as well as destroy it.

Spring 2- Predator

Take a walk on the wild side as we get up close and personal with fearsome felines, sinister snakes and breath-taking birds in our Predator topic. Where do you fit in the food chain? Find out!

Summer 1Heroes and Villains

Martin Luther King, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks or Amy Johnson? Someone from your family or the local fire fighters? There are many heroes and heroines, but who do you admire most?

Summer 2- Scrumdiddlyumptious

Fantastic fruit, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats are all to be discovered in Scrumdiddlyumptious. Work up an appetite as you learn about food, nutrition and agriculture.
