In the Year 3 teaching team are:

Mrs. Woodcock, Miss Helliwell, Miss Beech and Miss Lawton.

In Year 3 we will be learning:
Autumn Term: How has water shaped Sheffield?
Spring Term: Does what you eat really matter? (Links to one-page Parent Newsletter)
Summer Term: Since when did what you wear matter?

A link to our curriculum overview can be found here.

Trips
We love trips in Year 3 as it really enhances our topics for us! This year we will be visiting:
Shepherd Wheel: Here we learn all about the power of water and the impact Sheffield’s water had on the industrial revolution!
Creswell Crags: During our day at Creswell Crags we explore a cave and develop our survival skills whilst learning about the lives of people from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age.
Whirlow Hall: Farm We are very lucky in Year 3 because in the Summer term we get to visit Whirlow Hall Farm for our residential trip. We help out around the farm and stay overnight too!

PE
Our PE days change in Year 3 because we go swimming in the Spring Term. You can find out our current PE days in the termly newsletter that is linked at the top of this page.
Keep checking back to find out what we’ve been learning in Year 3.
