Year 3

‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’

Dr. Seuss 

Year 3 is an important year as it represents the transition from KS1 to KS2. The
children will notice that the learning becomes more formal and structured and
independence and resilience are promoted and encouraged as two important skills
that will set them up for life in the juniors.

Children learn about life in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, a period
covering a million years of history. As well as understanding the chronology of this
fascinating time, children will learn about the food, religion, homes, technology, and
art and how each of these areas developed and changed over time and how
amazing developments occurred from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. 


UK Geography 

Children learn about the geography of the UK, looking at where the UK is on a world
map, the four different countries and their capital cities, rivers and mountains and
different landscapes and landmarks within our countries. 

Ancient Egypt  

During this topic, the children learn about life in Ancient Egypt which includes what
they ate, wore, and how they spent their free time. They learn about the importance
of the River Nile as a transportation route and a source of energy for animals and
crops. In addition to this, they also learn about Pharaohs, the important part they
played in Egyptian Society, their burial customs and beliefs.
