Welcome to Year 3 Willow Class Page

 How does the past change the future?

Project Overview

Throughout this REAL Project, pupils will explore how discoveries in the past have shaped the future. With particular focus on themes such as teamwork and creative thinking, pupils will look at the journey from Stone Age through Bronze Age to Iron Age, and how each civilization used their skills and new discoveries to invent tools and other items that we still use today. They will explore how these have changed over time as we uncovered new findings in our history. As a year group we will be reading Stig of the Dump, exploring how the themes of this story relate and give insight into our essential question.

Mini Outcomes

  • Create a timeline of the prehistoric period – from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age.
  • A labelled final design of our creative product.
  • Persuasive text to support our product design.

Final Outcome

A ‘dragons den’ event where we will persuade people to support our designed product.

Year 3 will have PE on Tuesdays. We ask pupils to please leave their normal school PE kit in school throughout the term.

Reading records (blue book) and home readers must be in school every day – we advise storing these in pupils’ school bags. Please make it a priority to read with your child and sign their reading records at least three times a week.

Maths and English Homework is set on Seesaw on a Monday and is expected to be completed by the following Monday.

Pupils are also asked to use our online learning tools at home.

These will be monitored online by class teachers. Passwords for these apps have been uploaded to your child’s seesaw page.
