Welcome to Year 3!
Wow! You are now in KS2!
Year three is a special year in which children for the first time get to experience what life was like in the Stone Age. They get to visit the Chiltern Open Air Museum where the Stone Age workshop involves them in lighting fires, covering temporary dome structures; handling replica Mesolithic tools and objects and more. Children really do take something away from this experience.
During the RE topics, children get to visit a Hindu and Sikh temple (Mandir and Gurdwara) where they learn about all the festivals and differences in beliefs; they are taken on a tour around the buildings. The Sikh temple we visit is the largest Gurdwara outside India and I must say both children and adults are amazed by the size and beautiful detail to the building. It is a fantastic experience where you can learn so much about other religions!
These are just some of the fun things we do in year 3; we also learn the recorder and perform a piece of music to the school and our Ancient Egypt topic is quite impressive!
