Year 3

Autumn Term

Our first topic for this term has been thinking about the question ‘Why was the Victorian era important for us?’ with a history focus. We will be looking at the differences between rich and poor, conditions in the workhouses and what life was like for children. We will also be learning about the monarch behind it all, Queen Victoria. At the end of the topic, we will be having a WOW day, experiencing a day in a Victorian school.

Our first science focus has been looking at ‘Animals, including Humans’ where we have been learning all about balanced diets and the different nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy. We have had lots of fun making some balanced meals using lots of different foods! We are also going to be looking at the different parts of a skeleton and how they all work together to move and the muscles inside of our body and how they work.

In R.E, we have been looking at what the Holy Trinity and what it means to Christians. After half term, we will be focusing on Religious Festivals in Christianity and Hinduism.

We will also be learning the recorder in our music lessons as we will be attending the Recorder Festival next year! We will post more about the Recorder Festival and what we have learned on the recorder later in the term.
