Summer 2

Welcome to Year 3!


Hello, welcome to Year 3.

At Avenue Primary, we learn about a different topic every half term. These topics and called ‘drivers’ and revolve around a main question, which links specifically to either Science, History or Geography.


For this half term, we have two Science drivers and our questions to investigate are…



Within the first Science driver, we will be looking at light and identifying different light sources. We will also be investigating how shadows are formed and how/why they change. In addition to this, we will be testing various materials and observing how light travels through them. We will also be discussing how to keep safe in the sun.


Moving into the second driver, we will be looking at the different parts of a plant and what their purpose is. We will also be discovering what plants need to grow and what some have fruits and some don't. We will also be investigating how seeds get from one place to another.



Here is an outline of the other curriculum areas we will be covering this term.


Please also look below for some links to useful websites for the children to use for their own research and enjoyment.

Can you separate your shadow from yourself?

What would happen in a world without plants/bees?

Research on the internet how to make a pinhole camera OR make a stain glass window picture.  Try to use a variety of materials.  Which materials allow the light through?
