Year 3: Holly and Hazel Classes

Welcome to Year 3 Holly and Hazel Class Page. 

We are taught by Miss Emma Brown and Mr James Sidebottom.

We are supported by Mrs Louise Amesbury and Mrs Michelle Roberts. 

Let’s travel back to prehistoric times!

Topic Learning this term is called 'Tribal Tales.'  We will be learning about the different aspects of the Stone Age. We have already had a very exciting encounter with a cave man and we have even been on an archaeological dig! 


Through our research, we’ll learn about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. What were people’s daily lives like and what epic battles did they fight? Using techniques such as cutting, scraping and mark making, we’ll make Stone Age tools. We’ll look closely at cave paintings and create our own. As we learn about the Bronze Age, we’ll build monuments and investigate their shadows. Then, we’ll travel to the Iron Age to learn about hill forts and the properties of iron. We’ll also make Iron Age jewellery.

At the end of the topic, we’ll write performance poetry to insult our enemies!


In science, we will be exploring the world around us, in particular, shadows, the need for sunglasses, and why cats eyes reflect light. What interesting investigations ahead of us!
