In Year 3 we will begin the year with our topic ‘Deadly Dinosaurs’. Children will discover how fossils are formed and in which era the T-rex lived. After half term we will explore the Natural History Museum and learn about the work of Mary Annings. English will be a mixture of poetry, such as Limericks, fables and other stories, reports and instructions. Maths will see a big focus on learning our times tables this year. Swimming is in both the autumn and spring terms.


Later in the year, children will learn about Spanish culture through Spanish dance, food, art and culture. Science topics this year include light, forces and magnets, animals and plants. Computing is linked through the year with units on data, images and communication. We are planning a trip in the summer term to Kidzania, where children run an indoor city and try out different professions for the day!
