Welcome to Year 3 Presentation


This year, we will be introducing an enquiry-based approach to all of our topics. Where possible other areas of learning will be linked.

Year 3 enquiries this year are:

Can you feel the force? (Science- Forces and Magnets)

How do plants die? (Science – plants)

Where does the darkness come from? (Science- light and dark)

How can we find out about people in the past? (History- chronology, sources, artefacts and historical language)

What is underneath our feet? (Geography – Rocks and Soils)

What is the difference between surviving and being healthy? (Science – Animals including Humans)

Why did people travel in the past? (History- local beyond 1066)


We will be sending out curriculum newsletters termly so you will know what your child will be learning.

Please come and speak to us if you have any concerns or questions.

Thank you for your support,
