Year 3

Summer Term Whole School Topic – Amazing Africa and Awesome Ancient Egypt

We are delighted to introduce our new whole school topic and Years 3, 4 and 5 started with a stunning start on Monday 25th April with each class finding out about a chosen country in Africa. Please find our curriculum newsletter below and links to our year group learning journeys and core knowledge files. These are also available on our school website. Our humanities subject lead has worked closely with each year group to ensure that we have provided a progressive set of skills and knowledge across the Key Stage, and we have thought inclusively about our core literacy texts and topic books. We look forward to sharing more photos and information with you throughout the summer term.

Year 3

We will be taken on a journey to Nigeria, where we will do an in-depth study of this West African country. Using “Living in Nigeria” as the basis for our geography lessons, we will learn about its varied physical and human geography, from the mountains and rich tropical rainforests in the South, to the vast grasslands and savannah in the North.

Later on in the Summer Term, we will look at the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. We will learn about the importance of the River Nile and what life was like for Ancient Egyptian children.
