Friday 17 November 2023 Rainforests of the world! This week in Geography, Children have been learning about the rainforest of the world. They’ve investigates the atlases to see if they could find the name of the different tropical rainforests. We looked at graphs of the average rainfall across the year to think about the climate. Rainforests are hot and wet all year round which makes them very humid.

Friday 15 September 2023 Looking at Egger This week in Y3 children have started their Geography topic on Egger: From Forest to Factory.

We looked at the ingredients that they use to create their chipboard and tried to sort them into their categories of recycled materials, hackwood and sawdust.

Year 3 2023
Start of the Year
Year Three (Y3) is the first of four years children spend in Key Stage Two (KS2).
They follow the Y3 or lower KS2 programmes of study from the Primary Curriculum published September 2014. Children are taught key subjects through specific units of work for example themes and projects such as Take One Picture, STAR WARS during STEM fortnight, Pandora and the Greeks.
Children can be taught by different teachers. For example, in Music, Spanish and PE they work with a number of specialist coaches in tennis and cricket.
They also have access to an exciting range of extra-curricular clubs such as Choir, Football and Dance.
For further information about Y3 please refer to Y3 Routines and Procedures and Curriculum Maps.
