Year 3

Happy new year and welcome back to the start of a new term at St. George & St. Martin’s Catholic Academy.  I hope everybody has had a safe and enjoyable Christmas!

This term our topic in year 3 is Cavemen and Crafters, which will be taught through a Creative Curriculum. We began with our Launch Day on Tuesday 15th January, when we joined in with lots of prehistoric fun including artwork, role play and timeline exploration.

Here is a taster of what our curriculum will look like this term.
