Our foundation subjects are taught thematically, through our Big Question curriculum, which places a key question at the centre of each term’s learning and is planned around the Heathfield, Head, Heart and Hands.
The Big Questions in year 3 are:
How did pre-historic Britain shape my life? (Autumn)
During this BQ, children will explore pre-historic Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. They will understand how humans survived over 2 million years ago and how the development of farming has helped us today.
How would you survive Ancient Egypt today? (Spring)
During this BQ, children will explore the ancient Egyptian civilization and the legacies that are still alive today. Children will understand why the River Nile was considered a gift and how it was key to their survival.
How did the Romans change the lives of people in Europe? (Summer)
During the third BQ, children will explore how the Roman Empire impacted the lives of people in Europe tincluding roads, government, engineering and construction.
