Welcome to the Y3 Learning Blog- a place where you can have a look at what we've been doing in Y3 and what will be coming up as well. 
 
Our new theme is all about Ancient Egypt. Already, the children are very excited about it and have been sharing their prior knowledge with us. We can't wait to find out more about pyramids, Pharaohs and crocodile-headed Gods.
 
Below you can find our Knowledge Organiser, which will tell you all about our current topic.
Our Year Overview is a working document so it changes quite a lot each year so that we can match the best learning to the children. This is what it looks like at the moment.
