Welcome to Sparrow Class, and to Year 3! We hope your child will have an exciting year with us and we look forward to seeing them thrive and grow.

Below, you will find our Yearly Overview which outlines our coverage for this year. If you have any questions about this, or anything else, please do not hesitate to come and see us.


The children are greatly enjoying our first topic - Predator! So far, they have learnt about the Venus Fly Trap and how this plant preys on flies and other insects. Next, they thought about how plants in general transport water around themselves. They are carrying out experiments to see what happens when celery is placed in food colouring to help their understanding of water transportation in plants.

The children are also learning about the human body, and those of other animals. They have recognised that some animals have skeletons inside their bodies whilst other skeletons are outside of the body. Humans have endoskeletons and the children created diagrams of the human body, including muscles and bones. Didn't they work hard?!
