Class 3

Welcome to Class 3

 The home of Brookside’s Learning Heroes!

In Year 3 we love to learn new things and work together to achieve our goals. We are excellent friends to each other and like to help our peers move forward in their learning.

We really enjoy reading books by the author Jeff Brown and finding out about Flat Stanley, as well as working our Mathematical brains in problem solving investigations.

Our first topic of the year will be Ancient Greece where we will learn about one of the earliest civilizations. In the second part of the Autumn term, our topic will be about the geography of Greece and Healthy Eating. We will be learning about the Mountains and how they are formed and we will be making healthy pitta breads in DT. We will be learning about the geography of Egypt as well as the history of Ancient Egypt. Our next topic will be Rock and Roll where we will learn about the Stone Age and Volcanoes and Earthquakes. In the Summer term, in the second part of the Autumn term, our topic will be The Iron Giant by Ted Hughes. We will be learning about the Bronze Age, Iron Age and we will make pop up books about The Iron Giant in DT. Finally, our last topic will be Where We Live and this will include a study of the UK.
