Year 3


To kick off the Autumn Term in Year 3, we explore what the Earth was like in prehistoric times. We step through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age by participating in a number of classroom activities and hosting our very own Stone Age Day. Children learn about weapons, food, settlements and the geographical changes that would have occurred during this period, focussing learning towards the end of the Autumn Term on natural disasters. We also provide the children with a chance to handle artefacts, try on authentic clothing and observe prehistoric activities such as fire lighting, as part of our ‘Hands on History’ visit.

We hold an artefact exploration day in school, where the children view a variety of exciting artefacts and mummify their own life size mummy! To end the year, we hold a Year 3 sleepover where we play games and watch a suitable film.
