What is in store for year 3 this Autumn?

Welcome to our year 3 page where you find out all about our wider curriculum topics this term.

History: How and Why did Ancient Britain Change?

We will be unearthing the early steps our human ancestors took from some of the first places humans called home to the first tools and weapons created for hunting. We will journey through our human development from the Stone Age to the Metal Ages and how man’s growing capabilities and use of new materials enabled them to succeed and thrive while also seeing the how this change affected Britain. We will finish with the Invasion of the Romans and their significant impact on life in Britain two thousand years ago and how influence is still visible today.
