Welcome to Year 3!!


It is so lovely to be back at school and to see everyone working so hard!

This half term we are going to learn about the Stone Age in history, rocks, fossils and soils in science, aboriginal journeys in art and much, much more, On our resources page you can find links to some websites that will help you with your learning. 


Rocks, Soil and Fossils


This half term we will dive under the earth to investigate the different types of rocks such as sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic . We will identify them and be able to explain how each rock type is formed and the different processes needed to create them. By looking at the fossils, we will find out what we can learn about other periods of history and where in the layers of soil and the earth these intriguing treasures are found. 



The Stone Age 


The Stone Age is a period in prehistory during which early humans began to use tools made out of stone to aid them in their everyday lives. This advancement in technology paved the way for the Bronze Age and Iron Age in which early humans learnt the limitations of their tools and how to improve them. Migration of humans from nomadic tribes allowed for the migration of trade, materials and resources across the time period. We will learn all about how the early humans communicated through their cave paintings, lived in and built their homes, hunted their food and developed their lifestyles to face the ever-changing climate.
