Year 3 will be erupting, shaking and splashing their way through the Spring term with our topic ‘Catastrophe’. In Geography, we will learn all about the different natural disasters including earthquakes, volcanoes and floods. We will discover how natural disasters can be triggered and study the devastating effects these disasters can cause. As part of this topic, we will visit Magna to explore the earth, water, fire and air pavilions as well as take part in a volcanoes and rocks workshop.
Inspired by our natural disaster topic, in DT we will be designing a frame structure that can with stand an Earthquake! Furthermore, in music we will be creating and composing a musical piece, which will depict a volcanic eruption.
As scientists, we will investigate how magnets work, what effects their strength and identify and classifying which materials are magnetic.
In Computing, we will developing our programming and coding skills. Using the software Scratch, we will learn how to sequence sounds by ordering blocks of code.
In PE, Mr McCarroll will deliver a striking and fielding sequence around quick cricket.
