Welcome to Year 3
Around the World in 80 Days
During this second term the children will learn about people, places and cultures around the World incorporating elements of this into all curriculum areas.
Through the study of primary and secondary sources the children will gain an insight into life in countries in all the continent of the World and develop an understanding of where different countries and continents are. They will embark on journey of historical and geographical enquiry when they discover where places are and what they are like, exploring everything from everyday life to the Seven Wonders of the World.
We will encourage children to become independent learners through the use of information books and exploring the internet for information, developing their safety and information retrieval skills by checking the information they find for accuracy.
Being able to show empathy is an important social skill which will enable the children to have an appreciation of the difference between life and cultures across the world and our high expectations will encourage the children to organise their ideas in a creative and confident manner.
Children will access the topic through a variety of learning styles to encourage personalised learning. This will include: visual literacy, practical Science, Art and DT activities, listening and responding to world music: to inspire work in PE, dance and Music.
