Science:

Amazing Bodies – We will be considering what humans need to survive and will learn about some of the muscles in the body and how these help to move our skeleton.

The children will carry out investigations to see whether features of a person’s body affect their performance in certain activities. In addition, we will be linking the topic to diet, strength and movement of cavemen.

Yr. 3 followed a set of instructions and made their own woolly mammoths out of paper - see below:

History

For the autumn term our topic will be  What does prehistory teach us?’  Within this topic, the children will be studying the Stone Age, the Iron Age and Bronze Age.

They will make comparisons between the different periods and develop their understanding of the chronology of this time. The children will learn how these people lived and the differences between these times.  In addition, the children will be encouraged to compare the period and will be taught how to use maps to locate the different settlements.

As part of our Black History Month Celebration, the children will learn about Who are our Black Inventors and what they achieved?’, one will be male the other female. 

ICT

We shall be using the ‘2Simple’ software to create a Stone Age animation which shows the daily routines of life and survival.

Year 3's Trip to Celtic Harmony

Yr. 3 recently went on their first school trip of the year to Celtic Harmony.  When they arrived they were greeted by Soulis  - a lady from the Stone Age who helped to transport them all back in time to the Stone Age era.   During the day the children took part in a range of activities such as den building, hunting for woolly mammoths and foraging for food.  They watched in amazement as Soulis made a fire with sticks as well as sharpening flint stones and much much more!

Yr. 3 really enjoyed their trip and learnt so much.  Thank you to Miss Pavlou and Miss Lucy for organising such a wonderful day.
