It's that time already! As winter draws in, Year 3 will be heating up with our topic Tremors, where we will discover all about Natural Disasters. We will learn about (and make) volcanoes, whilst discovering the ancient city of Pompeii, finding out about the Ring of Fire and what goes on deep in the Earth's core. We will write stories about rocks (yes, really!) and investigate the properties of different rocks including hardness and permeability.
We have three classes in Year 3:
Gold Class, Silver Class and Bronze Class
They will be supported and guided through this important year by:-
Next term we look forward to the topic, Mighty Metals!
You’re an engineer, a scientist, a maker of men (iron men, of course). Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials. Expand your mind as you test and trial, build and move. Which force is at play as you slide down a slide or swing on a swing? Can you explain why magnets repel and attract? Can you make a penny look shiny and new or build a steel band from pots and pans? Then, meet Hogarth the Iron Man’s companion. The Iron Man wants a friend. Can you build him one? You must make him strong, sturdy and ready to rumble! If you were a metal, which one would you be? Gold, a shimmering, precious and costly mineral? Or steel, that strong and useful alloy? Maybe you’re iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust! Maybe you’re not a metal at all – but a force to be reckoned with!
If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues
We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.
We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each week.
We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.
