Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 3 Page
This year we will be covering:
Children will learn about changes in Britain from Stone Age (Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods), Bronze Age to the Iron Age, focussing on achievements, housing, society, food, entertainment and beliefs for each age.
Children will learn about forces in the context of pushing and pulling, and will identify different actions as pushes or pulls. The children will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate friction, by exploring the movement of a toy car over different surfaces. They will work in a hands-on way to identify magnetic materials. They will investigate the strength of different types of magnets and will have chance to explore the way magnetic poles can attract and repel.
Children will learn the names of the 7 continents and different countries of the world and locate them on a map. They will be thinking about areas of natural disasters. They will think about different layers of the Earth. They will also learn about rocks and fossils.
Children will learn about nutrition during this topic and the seven types of nutrients humans need to grow.
They will also learn about skeletons, vertebrates and invertebrates. We will also think about Fairtrade food and farming.
In this topic children will investigate plant parts, the plant life cycle and think about what a plant needs to grow.
