Year 3 Long Term Plan 2023 - 2024 

Autumn Term 

Stone Age Day

Y3 took part in a Stone Age Workshop! We had a lot of fun learning about life in the Stone Age and completing activities like, carding and weaving - even using a VR headset to spot woolly mammoths! We all enjoyed our adventure going back in time!


In our dance lessons we have created a dance routine called 'Machine where we have been thinking about the dynamics of the movement.

Science Rockstars

Year 3 have been fabulous ‘Rockstars’ they have been comparing and grouping together different kinds of rocks on the basis of appearance and simple physical properties. They have produced some fabulous work!

Planet in a Pickle Jar

During our first few days of Year 3, we worked on the gorgeously illustrated picture book ‘Planet in a Pickle Jar’ by Martin Stanev. This book is about not judging people based on appearances, and how families can work together to help save the planet. We worked on lots of different activities based on the book and at the end of the week we all filled a pickle jar with something we love!   Year 3 absolutely loved this book and their pickle jars were extremely personal and thoughtful.

Celebrating Our Lady's Birthday

Year 3 have had a fabulous few days settling into life in KS2. As part of celebrating Our Lady's birthday the children took part in a class liturgy, where they showed reverence & respect. They displayed a fabulous knowledge of the life of Our Lady throughout the liturgy. In class the children created their own statue of Mary and wrote prayers dedicated to her..
