Year 3


Spring Term

This half term in Religion lessons we will continue with our topic, (Mary, Mother of God" and in the second half term we will be completing work on the "Sacrament of Reconciliation."  During this topic we will be focusing on the story of Zacchaeus and thinking about how his life changed for the better after meeting Jesus.  Throughout the topic we will reflect on God's love and forgiveness and think about times in our lives when we have needed to be forgiven.

In Geography we will study "Mountains" and learn about the location of some famous climbs.  We will use books, maps and the internet to research and locate well known mountains and present our findings in the form of a leaflet.  In the second half term we will be learning about the Egyptians in History.  We will complete Art and D.T. lessons based on this theme.

We will be continuing to learn about "Rocks" in Science lessons for the initial few weeks and then we will be starting our next topic "Forces and Magnets."  When learning about forces and magnets we will complete some investigations, experimenting with magnets.  In the second half term we will be extending our existing "Plants" knowledge by learning about the functions of the different parts of a plant and we will be discovering how plants make their own food.
