Welcome to our Year 3 Page

Throughout the course of the year, we study exciting research topics with strong cross-curricular links to Maths and English. In Year 3, we aim to enthuse and inspire the children by teaching active and engaging lessons across the curriculum.

We hope to create learners who are in control of their own education and who will continue to be independent thinkers in their lives beyond the classroom.

Term by Term

Our research areas in Year 3 are not only exciting but captivate the children and provide opportunities to showcase their talents across the curriculum.

In the Autumn Term, we embark on an adventure to “Discover a Hidden World”. We explore Australia; its history, the people, the culture, the climate and its links to a very special explorer who was born right here in Middlesbrough. Climb aboard the Endeavor and go on a journey to a hidden land.

During the Spring Term, we switch our focus to the Stone Age and look at this important time in our evolutionary history. We discuss timelines to set this period into wider British History and we will discover the meaning of Prehistory. The children will discover some of the major achievement of the Stone Age society and begin to study what early cave art was like.

In the Summer Term, we investigate the rise of the Roman Empire, both historically and geographically. We look into the two contrasting stories about the founding of Rome, discussing the difference between legends and facts. We look at important Romans through history and those who fought against them. The children put themselves into the shoes of Boudica and discuss whether or not we should fight back!

Residential Experience

Residential trips are an important part of school life, providing new approaches to learning and helping children grow in self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience. As an introduction to a residential visit, Year 3 invite the children to spend the night in a safe setting whilst still experiencing the excitement of a residential stay. The children will set up camp in one of the classrooms and take part in some team building activities on the school field.

Technology in the Classroom

In Year 3, the children will use iPads, Chromebooks, Augmented Reality and QR codes to enhance their learning experience. iPads and Chromebooks are often used to help with research as well as being used to provide instant feedback and share ideas across the Year group. Augmented Reality and QR codes hook the children and engage them both inside and outside of the classroom.
