Year 3 is an exciting year for the children as they progress from KS1 to KS2. During the autumn term, children learn about the stages of pre-history including The Stone Age, The Bronze age and finally The Iron Age. Much of the content covered is fed through our English topics, too. The children learn how to make Stone Age paint and write instructions for this. They also venture into the Stone Age and write their own stories! In design and technology, we investigate different bread types, looking at various types and comparing them. We will have a bread tasting session and then make our own to take home.

Later in the spring term, the children will learn all about The Romans. The children will learn about Roman legends and stories, such as Romulus and Remus and use these to create their own legends. In Art, they will explore the technique of mosaic design using ICT resources and clay. ​

Finally, in the summer term, the children learn about the lives of the vicious Vikings. They will design and make their own Viking long ships. Using clips from “How to train your dragon”, the children produce exciting and thrilling stories, play scripts and poems.
