This year in Year 3 we are excited to start our learning journey in Key Stage 2. Throughout our year in History we will be focusing on our city of Lincoln and looking what our city was like in Roman times. We will be looking at the evidence to prove that the Romans lived in our city. We will then be moving onto the chronology of the other areas of History: Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Vikings and Saxons and how they all fit together. Within our Geography work we will look at Welton and compare it to Lincoln, think about why Earthquakes and Volcanoes occur and what impact they have on the world. In art we will study the artists Georgia O’Keeffe and MC Escher and then look at the structures designed by Gaudi. In DT we will look at mechanisms and make a moving toy using cogs along with examining and creating our own packages and designing and making our own aprons. Through our PE work we will focus on the core skills and look at the skills needed in hockey, fencing and athletics along with developing our swimming skills and technique. In music we will be developing our listening and appraising skills alongside composing and performing. We look forward to inviting you to a concert later in the year to share our music making with you. In science we will begin the Autumn term learning about the human body with a focus on food and nutrition and the skeletal system. Now that we are in Key Stage 2, we will also begin to learn French as our modern foreign language with the support of Madame Dale.

We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead and will share regular updates on the school twitter and facebook pages.
