Year 3

Overview of Learning 2016-17

Year 3 Topic Learning Project - Spring 1 2019

Autumn 1 - Living Together; Community

The big idea

We all belong to many different communities – family, friends, sports teams, activity groups, etc. However, there is one thing that every community has in common – people. We must learn how to respect, support and work with other people if we hope to become valuable contributors to the communities that we are a part of.

Autumn 2 - Temples, Tombs and Treasures

The big idea

The people who helped create the first great civilisations were not unlike you and me. Today we can learn a lot about these people and their way of life through the things they left behind – from everyday objects to magnificent and rare treasures!

Spring 1 - Scavengers and Settlers

The big idea

Humans are special. Unlike other animals, we can adapt and learn new skills in order to survive, which is exactly what our ancestors did in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages!

Spring 2 - Different Places, Similar Lives

The big idea

People lead different lives. Even people in the same country, the same town or the same street can have different lifestyles. But they can have things in common too – they can both like the same food or football team! We are going to find out about things that make us different and things that make us the same.

Summer 1 & 2 - Saving the World

The big idea

Rainforests once covered 14% of our world’s surface. Now they cover less than 5%. Every second, an area of the rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed. Some scientists believe that, if we lose our rainforests, we might put our whole planet at risk. What will we do to help save the rainforest?
