What Makes the Earth Angry? - Spring 1

 

After an exciting start to the new term, where we have looked at volcanoes, flooding, mountains and earthquakes during Our Powerful Planet project, Year 3 will be continuing to learn about volcanoes in more detail across the curriculum areas and largely focusing on geography.

We will be learning about and sorting different types of rocks within our science work. We will be exploring volcanoes including the location of well-known volcanoes. In Art, we will be creating volcano pictures based on work of American artist Margaret Godfrey, introducing children to shading techniques and different mediums. We will be making our own volcanoes, using them to produce our own volcanic eruptions!

In PSHE, we have been looking at strengths and challenges. Each team was given the challenge of working together to make a marble run which would safer carry a marble over our volcano. The children had to note their feeling before the challenge and again after, thinking about the role they played within the team.

Pompeii Freeze Frames

After visiting the volcano in our hall and listening to a person from Pompeii recall the horrors of Mount Versuvius exploding in 79AD, the children produced time lapsed freeze frame drama as the day.

As part of our Geography studies we learnt about the different layers of the Earth. The children enjoyed working together to create their salt dough models.

Autumn Term 2018

In the Autumn term we begin with our transition topic where the children learn about life at the Junior school. We discover what life was like 3000 years ago in Ancient Egypt in our exciting topic ‘Time to Meet a Mummy’. We learn about farming, the importance of the River Nile, the fascinating pyramids, the pharaohs and the different stages of mummification! In Science, we will look at ‘Forces and Magnets’, comparing and grouping a variety of everyday materials on whether they are attracted to a magnet. We then investigate human and animal skeletons. In music lessons we will compose and perform Egyptian music. D.T. involves investigating and making levers and linkages during our mechanical systems work.

Roald Dahl Day

 

On Roald Dahl day we began by giving clues as to our character for the rest of the class to guess. We then looked at character descriptions and wrote a wanted poster for one of the mean farmers in Fantastic Mr Fox.
