Welcome to Year 3

We will be looking at the characteristics of fairy tales and traditional stories such as heroes and villains.

In Science, we will be exploring Animals including humans, with a focus on nutrition, the digestive system and teeth. We will be exploring the artwork of Julian Opiein in Art/DT, with a focus of outlining character sketches of portraits.

Our Big Question this term is: How do we stay healthy?
