Themes & Topics
During the Autumn Term, we will travel back in time to the Stone Age during our topic ‘Meet the Flintstones’. Children will use a range of sources, including archaeology, to establish an understanding of British history. They will be looking at early settlements and how people used to live. There will be opportunities to explore the art of weaving.
‘Tomb Raiders’ is the topic during the SpringTerm; the children will be travelling on the river Nile to find out why it has been so valuable to the Egyptians. Children will be using atlases and maps and developing their geographical vocabulary. They will use a variety of resources, including the internet, to answer their questions. They will create a moveable mummy.
Our Summer Term topic is ‘Moorhill Miners’ and children will be looking at how the mining industry affected the local area and the community. Starting the topic will include a visit by former miners who will share their experiences with the children. This visit will enable the children to interview and question the miners and gain first-hand experience of the mining community. Throughout the topic, the children will learn how mining played an important role in the local community. We have arranged a visit to the Black Country Museum on Wednesday 1st October.
More details will follow later. We would like the children to research mining in and around the local area and we would welcome any research notes, posters, pictures or even models that your child has worked on with you!
The children will be developing their musical skills when being taught how to play the keyboard by a professional visitor. The Year 3 staff will also be joining in the lessons so watch out X Factor, here we come!
