Year 3 Curriculum Summer

Discover and Create

Successful Learners

Areas of learning

  • As scientists, we will investigate plants and how they contribute to our world. We will consider the various environments plants grow in and how they adapt to different conditions. Additionally, we will think about healthy living, including food, drink, our skeleton and exercise. The aim will be to help children understand what it means to have an all-around healthy life style.
  • In English, we will return to non-chronological reports and create leaflets about extreme weather and natural disasters. We will then move onto play scripts. We will also think about how to write emotively by creating particular feelings through descriptive writing and dialogue.
  • As geographers, we will explore the attractions of Whitton and the local area and compare it to other British towns or cities. We will then begin looking at other cities around the world and the different experiences they have to offer.

Confident Individuals

PSHE and Citizenship

  • We will be learning about our rights and responsibilities.
  • We will explore some of the UN conventions of the Rights of a Child and reflect upon the rights that we may possibly take for granted in our community.
  • We will reflect upon the responsibility we have not to remove rights of others.

Responsible Citizens


  • We will be learning about the Water cycle and how we can save water as part of our Weather Around the World Topic. We will also consider how human behaviour can impact weather patterns.

Spiritual & Moral

  • This term we will be looking at how we celebrate significant events in our lives such as birthdays and weddings.
  • We will look at how a range of faiths celebrate significant events with a particular focus on Jewish celebrations in the second part of the Summer Term.


  • We will explore our shared responsibility in taking care of the plants in our local environment through the Kew Gardens ‘Power of Persuasion’ challenge.
