Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Your teachers in Year 3 are Miss MacPherson and Mr Smith, supported by Miss Hallam and Miss Harper.

For our final topic of the year we are about to tackle what happened in the world from 3 million years ago to 1000BC, a period that covers the Stone Age to the Iron Age. During this topic we will be looking at the geography of the world and how it has changed over time as well as studying rocks in our science lessons so we can see what all of the fuss was about!


Look forward to writing diary entries, holding debates, writing fantastic stories about the Stone Age and learning many interesting historical facts about the Stone Age and Iron Age. 


This term sees us finish our work on fractions before our focus shifts to shape, statistics and measurement where we revisit time, mass, length and capacity.
