Every Person is Precious to God

Welcome to Year Three!

Hello and welcome to the class page for Year 3! Year 3 marks the beginning of Key Stage 2, which means the children will build on everything they have learnt so far in Early Years and Key Stage 1 and apply it to the Year 3 curriculum. Children will be starting to work more independently on a variety of engaging topics across the school year. Please find further information below about current learning and events in Maple and Hazel class.

6) English - The Trojan Horse

This week, we are learning about a new Ancient Greek Myth called The Trojan Horse. Watch the youtube clip below and answer the following comprehension questions.

Spring 2

This half term, Year 3 are starting a new topic all about Ancient Greeks. To support their learning, the children will take part in an exciting Ancient Greeks workshop where children will meet a spartan and take part in their own Ancient Greek theatre performance. Children will use their reading skills to predict and infer different texts linked to the Ancient Greece and use their knowledge from curriculum lessons to inspire their own writing using Year 3 writing skills. In MFL, the children will be reviewing their previous units and learn the names of common pets in Spanish. Take a look at our subject knowledge mats below to find out more information.
