Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to year 3 I hope you all had a lovely summer. The children have settled well in to the juniors and are working hard.


This half term our topic is Gods and Mortals, we’ll learn about Apollo and the other gods who reign from Mount Olympus. We’ll explore the land of Greece, where the sun scorches the wings of Icarus and Helen of Troy inspires the launch of a thousand ships. Using historical source materials, we’ll research daily life in ancient Greece. We’ll write diaries as Daedalus or Icarus and learn about epic battles. We’ll read Theseus and the Minotaur and create amazing labyrinths, using positional language to guide others around the maze. On maps of Greece, we’ll plot the journeys made by ancient Greek characters.
