Autumn Term

Autumn 1 was a great start to KS2 for Year 3!


We learned that not only can we be geographers but we are ourselves geography!

By learning about our location, we have been able to find our place in the world (and beyond). We even created our alien address to pinpoint where we are in space!



Moving beyond Torbay, we began to explore the geography of Dartmoor and linked this to our science learning about rocks. As artists we created our impressions of Dartmoor using torn paper collage, take a look at our stunning display below!

Following on from our learning about rocks, it was time to send Autumn 1 out with a bang. In this lesson, we learned how fossils are formed and historical artefacts are buried using jelly sweets as dead organisms and artefacts, and layers of bread as the sediment. We then applied pressure with some heavy books and left for several hours. At the end of the day, we became archaeologists and palaeontologists as we uncovered the buried treasures and fossils one layer of squashed bread ‘rock’ at a time.
