Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Year 3 are ending the year with our Stone Age topic. The children will be looking at how people lived around 3 million years ago, investigating the foods which they ate and will become real life Stone Age citizens by making their own tools. We will end the year with a visit to the Longshaw Estate to experience what life was like around our local area 500,000 years ago.


The focus of this half term is to write Stone Age stories, produce and perform a wide range of poetry and there will be a lot of work around our class text 'Stig Of The Dump'.


This half term we will be focusing on 2D shape and the properties of them including parallel and perpendicular lines, angles of turn and discovering all about polygons. We then move on to 3D shape and measure.
