Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

The topics this term have been:

  • The Stone Age
  • Earthquakes
  • Volcanoes
  • Light of the World (Religion and Science)


Year Three have had an exciting and successful Lent term. We delved into the darkest caves of the Stone Age, learning about the different stages of the era. From the early palaeolithic hunter gatherers, fending off sabre tooth tigers, to the Neolithic early farms and settlements, with the first domesticated animals.

Moving on, we explored the impact of the tectonic plates on the earth; with scary case studies of the Kobe and Kaikoura earthquakes and the Icelandic Volcanic eruption. We discovered how the geographical fault lines impact on human life. To wrap up the term we have married religion with science in our exploration of Light of the World, investigating how light is symbolic in major world religions, and we have begun a scientific investigation into light which will continue into next term.
