Year 3 2023 - 2024
with Miss Forrester & Mrs Bundy
This term our topics are:
1. The Stone Age
We will be doing lots of cross-curricular learning to really embedd the children's understanding of how life was different in the Stone Age. Our key questions that we will be discussing are:
Were Stone Age people simply hunter and gatherers, concerned only with survival?
How much did life change when humans learned how to farm?
What can we learn about life in the Stone Age from a study of Skara Brae?
Why is it so difficult to work out why Stonehenge was built?
How much did life really change during the Iron Age and how can we possibly know?
2. Why are rainforests important to us?
In the second half term, our topic is ‘’Why are rainforests important to us?". We will be learning about biomes, the layers of the rainforest and will also compare our local forests and woodlands to rainforests.
