Welcome to the Year 3 class page
Welcome to our Year 3 class page!
We are hoping you had a lovely half term break and are ready to start a very exciting half term with lots of new and fun learning opportunities. We can’t wait to get started!
This term, Mrs Flint will teach Year 3 and Mr Shove will be supporting the learning throughout the week too.
We are starting this half term by immersing ourselves into the life of the Tudors. This fascinating historical unit will start with finding out who the first Tudor King was and when and why Henry VIII became King. We’ll explore the life of Henry VIII in more detail and learn the names of his wives. We will question Henry VIII ‘s impact on religion as well as understanding how vastly different the lives of the rich and the poor were at this time. At the end of the unit, we will learn about the monarchy after Henry VIII ‘s reign and what caused the end of Tudor Britain.
Alongside this historical unit of work, Year 3 will also be learning about ‘Forces and Magnetism’ in science. We’ll explore push and pull forces and understand how friction works. We’ll learn how a magnet works and name the different parts that make up a magnet. Towards the end of the unit, we will plan and conduct an experiment based on testing magnet strength.
As Easter draws closer, we will explore this important Christian festival. We will learn more about the events surrounding Palm Sunday and other key events too.
