Year 3 Curriculum Projects

Year 3 Project - Through the Ages

In the Through the Ages project, your child will learn about three different periods of British prehistory: the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. They will discover terminology relating to time and sequence dates to make a timeline. They explore the changes to people, homes and lifestyle throughout the different periods and investigate examples of prehistoric settlements, monuments, burials and artefacts in detail. They will also study how technology improved over time, including how the discovery of different metals changed the way that people lived.

Please encourage your child to practice telling the time at home, using an analogue clock.  You can use https://toytheater.com/clock/ to help support this (give them a time to make or you can make a time and ask them what it is).
