Welcome to our Year 3 Page
We will keep you up to date with what is happening in your child’s year group in this section. Details of their topics, class trips, wow days and class based activities can be found here.
Spring Term - Astronaut Academy
Our topic for the spring term is called Astronaut Academy. The topic begins with a training programme to become astronauts through a series of lessons based around Space. The children are given the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the life of an astronaut as they learn about the fitness, skills and knowledge that an astronaut would need. At the end of the topic, the children will attend a graduation ceremony where they will become astronauts. In our art sessions, we will be recreating the planets by using chalk, oil pastels, and water colours. They will also be designing and creating their own planets.
Autumn Term - Mysterious Mummies….
Ancient Egypt will inspire some very creative work. The children will learn how a Pharaoh was mummified. In Art, they will experiment with mixing different shades of colour to create wonderful paintings of sunsets over the pyramids. In Literacy, the children will read one of the world’s oldest fairy tales `The Egyptian Cinderella’. In Science, this term the two main topics are: Forces, in which the children will explore magnets and forces around them and Humans and Animals, where the children will learn about the life cycle and skeletal system.
Our school trip will be on Tuesday 15th October at the Arundel Wetlands centre to extend our knowledge of animal life cycles.
