Otters (Yr3)

Welcome to The Otters!


The class teachers are Mrs Lloyd and Mrs Axon

Please click on the following link to view the curriculum map for The Otters.

During this half term we will be focusing on Bronze Age ancient civilisations in Britain and around the world to help us answer our question ‘What did the ancient civilisations do for us?’ 

To see more information about our learning this term, please click on the link to our curriculum overview:

Our school values are: Responsibility, Resilience and Respect.

Our British Values Focus this Term 

In our assemblies this term, our British Values will link to our school values of Responsibility, Respect and Resilience. We will be looking primarily at the British Value of  Individual Liberty.

In our topic lessons, we will be looking at the British Values of Democracy when we learn about how the ancient civilisations were ruled and the different roles in society. We will be looking at the Rule of Law when we investigate the laws and punishments of Ancient Egypt and compare to them to modern British culture. In our PHSCE lessons, we will be looking at the value of Individual Liberty when we find out about potential risks in familiar situations e.g. railway tracks and building sites, and develop strategies to keep safe.


One of the seven outcomes we would like from our curriculum is for the children to develop their understanding of what it means to live in a diverse society such as Britain.

To support that this term, we will be looking at Christianity.
