Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

The teachers of Holly and Horse Chestnut classes are delighted to welcome your children back to Elm Grove and are happy that children are busy settling back into their routines and learning.

Year 3’s Autumn Learning Journey is ‘Stone Age Rome Age’

We have started an exciting new learning journey-Stone Age Rome Age. We will be using our skills as historians to find out more about how people lived in the past. their cultures, settlements and what changed through this period of history which will cover the stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron /age (Celts), which will be this half term, up until and including the Roman invasion. If you would like to do some research at home these links are very helpful. We always welcome and encourage children to share with the class anything they have made or found out relating to our learning journeys. Have fun!
