Welcome to Year Three.

Autumn Term Curriculum Year 3

Don’t forget to logon to Education City using your ‘City Pass’.

Welcome back! what a wonderful start to the year we are all having! The children have settled in wonderfully to year three and are really enjoying all the new topics and challenges.



In our English lessons we are really enjoying our class text ‘Storm’ by Kevin Crossley Holland. We have worked hard on writing our own descriptions of storm including ‘The playground on a stormy day’. We have learnt what personification and alliteration are and how to include them in our writing. We have also learnt how successful authors ‘hook’ the reader and we are applying some of these techniques in our own writing.

Our topic for History this half term is the Stone Age. We have really enjoyed learning facts about that period of time and have even made our own cave paintings! We are also looking forward to working with a specialist teacher of the Stone Age topic later on in this half term.

We had a wonderful time during our History workshop and loved learning about how people looked and the different fashions throughout the ages.
