Mighty Metals

The children will be investigating the properties of different metals in this topic. Working together as scientists, they will perform experiments using magnets and compasses to discover how and why different forces act on objects. The children will sort materials into magnetic and non-magnetic. They will try to protect an egg being dropped from a height, using a variety of materials to stop it breaking, making links to how our own skeleton protects our vital organs. They will research the function of our skeletons and organs, learning how to keep healthy and fit. 

Autumn 1

Predators

 

It's time to take a walk on the wild side! Find out who's coming to visit... is it a wriggly snake, a tortoise, a bearded dragon or another predator? Will the children be able to handle it? 

The children all learn all about creepy crocodiles and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug, and the voracious Venus flytrap. They will be inspired to write and informative leaflet about their favourite predator and compose poems about predators and their prey. 

They will use their knowledge to create the ultimate predator - the apex of the chain. What new and imaginative predators can they create? 

Summer 1

Scrumdiddlyumptious

The children will be going on a journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats! 

They will work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra and maybe even become a fruit sculptor. 

They will find exciting recipes and write their own too. 

They may get busy in the kitchen making tasty dishes from across the world, discovering how food helps you grow fit and strong.

They will create and make their own fruit smoothies.

With a visit to Cadbury's World it will be a busy term, full of new learning and experiences.

Tremors

Tremors! Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.

 

This half term Year 3 will be discovering the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters. To begin we will be learning about the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth’s breath-taking powers, which will lead us on to violent volcanoes and earth-shattering earthquakes.

 

Reading the ‘Firework Maker’s Daughter’ by Phillip Pullman we will follow the journey of a young girl named Lila who is desperate to follow in her father’s footstep. In order to do so she needs to make her way to Mount Merapi to find the fire fiend. But will she make it there alive?

Google Day

On Wednesday Google Expeditions came into school to share their new education app 'Expedition'. By using virtual reality technology the children were transported to different places around the world. They visited volcanoes, underwater reefs and the Galápagos Islands. All of this could be seen through a simple free app from the Apple Store and the Play Store. 

Year Three experience different volcanoes around the world and had an amazing time learning different facts.

Volcano Day

 

Year 3 have had a great time creating there own class volcano by making slat dough and wrapping it around a bottle of Cherryade.

 

They also created their own model village by using lots of different cardboard boxes to make buildings and had lots of fun decorating and painting them.

 

In the afternoon, we all went outside to erupt the volcanoes with our villages. We were all excited, surprised and shocked to see the explosion.
