Welcome to Class HA

A great big welcome to WJS and to the many adventures you'll have in Year 3!

What Are We Learning?

In the first half term we learnt all about our local area and took a trip to Stansted Airport to find out about how the site operates and what roles there are. We also learnt about our skeleton and muscles and what we need to eat to remain healthy.

This half term, we will be taking an adventure in our topic ‘Time Quest’ where we will travel to the Stone Age in our time machine and discuss how man survived-to support this work we will look at the book ‘Ug’. After the Stone Age we will re-embark our time machine and travel to some other eras through history. In science we will be looking at rocks and soils and finding out all about how fossils are made.
