Welcome to Year 3

 

Year 3a year 3b year3c

 

Our Science topic this term will be Rocks and Fossils. The children will be learning about the different types of rocks and fossils, grouping different types of rock and learning about important people in this field. In History, we will be learning about The Stone Age to The Iron Age.

Inspirational People:

  • Mary Anning: Mary was a fossil hunter and made some fascinating discoveries in her lifetime. In 1811, when Mary was 12, they uncovered a strange 5.2-metre-long skeleton! At the time, people believed that any unrecognisable creatures must have travelled from far-off lands, so scientists simply thought it belonged to a crocodile. Eventually, though, they realised it was an ancient species, and it was named Ichthyosaurus – meaning ‘fish lizard‘. Unfortunately, at the time, Mary did not receive credit for her discoveries due to her gender and family background.
  • Isambard Kingdom Brunel: Isambard Kingdom Brunel was born on 9th April 1806 in Portsmouth. He is believed to be one of the most versatile and pioneering engineers of the 19th century, responsible for the design of tunnels, bridges, railway lines and ships. We will be learning about Brunel in our Art and Design lessons.
