The Beeches Primary School

    Year 3 2019/2020

    Welcome to the Year 3 contents page.

    Check our airhead page from our recent Curiosity Cafe by clicking here.

    Our topics this year are:

    Tribal Tales

    Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen?

    What tribal tales will you have to tell?

    Mighty Metals

    You’re an engineer, a scientist, a maker of men (iron men, of course!).

    Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials... Expand your mind as you test and trial, build and move.

    If you were a metal, which one would you be? Maybe you’re not a metal at all – but a force to be reckoned with!

    Gods and Mortals

    From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water, from air and water came life! Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light.

    Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets.

    Urban Pioneers

    Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown, where the lights are bright and every street has a story to tell.

    Explore with fresh eyes the art of the city, then capture a moment in time.

    You’re an urban pioneer… so get ready to go!


    From humble beginnings the river flows down the mountain and in to the sea.

    Pull on your wellies and wade right in… How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the riverside? Which animals make their homes there? Let’s get down to the river bank and find out!

    Let’s meander through the world of rivers, taking a dip in to their watery world!


    Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats!

    Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra or become a fruity sculptor.

    And here’s food for thought – if you are what you eat ... what does that make YOU?
