The topic for this half term will be 'Gods and Mortals'

We will discover a world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian roads. We will explore the terrains of Greece as the sun scorches and melts everything it can under the watchful gaze of Icarus and Daedalus.


The topic for this half term will be 'Tribal Tales'

Year 3 will be taking this half term to step outside of the 21st century, throw away all modern technology and forget about the world as we know it.

Within ‘Tribal Tales’ we will be heading back to prehistoric times to unearth ancient objects, create astonishing monuments and reveal the secrets of a once forgotten time.


Our p.e days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Spellings will be given out on a Friday to be tested the following Thursday.
