Learning and News

Summer 1 

 

Geography

In Geography we will be focusing on the seaside.
 

The children will learn that the coast is the region where land meets sea and the seaside is a tourist resort by the coast. They will research features of a coast such as; sand, rocks, fishing and harbours. The children will be able to explain that beaches are made from erosion over a very long time and beach material comes from the eroded cliff. We will explore how coastlines are at threat to rising sea levels and seaside resorts rely on tourism. 

 

We are very excited to visit Blackpool beach this half term 

 

 

 

 

Science 

 

Our topic in science is forces and magnets.

 

The children will learn that friction is a contact force, which acts between two materials and objects move differently depending on which surface they are on e.g. a car will move slower over grass than over tarmac. We will recap from previous lessons that magnetic material are always made of metal, but not all metals are magnetic. The children will also learn that magnets have two poles - north and south, two poles the same repel and two opposite poles attract. 

 

Spring 1 

 

History

In history we will be focusing on 'How unpleasant were the Bronze and Iron Ages?'

The children will learn that in the Bronze age, British people learned to work with copper, tin, gold and bronze and they also invented the wheel, potters wheel and produced textiles. They will research the grave of a man dating to around 2,300BC was discovered three miles away from Stonehenge in May 2002. His grave was the richest from this period (early Bronze Age) ever found in Britain and contained the country’s first gold objects. We will discuss if we agree that not much happened in the iron age and if we think home life was much better in the Iron Age than the Bronze Age. 

 

 

Science 

Our topic in science is light and shadows. The children will learn that light is needed in order to see things and it is reflected from surfaces to see them. They will understand that dark is the absence of light and light from the sun can be dangerous, so they need to protect their eyes

We will look at diagrams of how light only travels in straight lines and the Sun and other stars, fires, torches and lamps all make their own light.  They will also explore concave and convex mirrors and they will investigate their own shadow changes.

05.05.22 Our trip to Blackpool seaside

W.B. 25.04.22 This week we have been investigating the forces of gravity and friction.

01.03.22 Today we played quiz, quiz trade to test our geography learning

Autumn 1  

To begin our learning in Year 3,  we will be finding out about the new Stone Age in history. Why is it called ‘The Stone Age’?, How much change happened in the Neolithic (new) Stone age?, What was life like in the early and middle stone ages? and What do archaeological finding tell us about this time?  

In Science, we will be exploring 'Where on Earth are we?'. What is the world like? What do the lines on the maps and globe mean? Why do we have day and night? and What time is it where you are?
