Geography - Continents, Cities and Continents

What is a continent?


A continent is a large continuous mass of land conventionally regarded as a collective region. There are seven continents: Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia (listed from largest to smallest in size). Sometimes Europe and Asia are considered one continent called Eurasia.


What is a country?


country is land that is controlled by a single government. Countries are also called nations, states, or nation-states. Countries can be large or small.


What is a city?


A city is a place where many people live together. They usually have large systems of houses, as well as ways of communicating and keeping the city clean.

    Science - Plants

In our journey, our young scientists will explore the amazing world of plants and discover the essential role they play in our lives.

Through hands-on activities, interactive lessons, and engaging experiments, students will delve into the mysteries of how plants grow, what they need to thrive, and how they adapt to different environments. They'll get their hands dirty as they plant seeds, watch them sprout, and observe the transformation from tiny seedlings to flourishing plants.

With a focus on curiosity and discovery, our Year 3 students will develop a deeper understanding of the natural world around them while fostering a lifelong appreciation for the beauty and importance of plants. 




We are focussing on 'digital literacy' this term.  We will be investigating web addresses and the importance of typing these correctly, learning how to bookmark pages and using the internet in our History unit. We will discuss the information found and how we can fact check it to make sure it is accurate.
