Welcome back to school for the start of our Summer Term!
Science - Forces and Magnets
This half term in science we will be investigating the effect of forces and magnets. We will learn what a force is and be able to identify different types of forces (including gravity and contact forces such as friction) in our every day lives.
We will spend time looking at magnets, and what makes different materials magnetic. We will ask questions such as 'will placing an object between the magnet and the material affect the magnetic field?' and 'when would a magnet through a material be useful?' We will explore magnetic products to ascertain the purpose, advantages and disadvantages of magnets.
Welcome back to Autumn 2!
This half term we are going to learn about where on Earth are we? in Geography, food and our bodies in science, shell structures in DT and much, much more, On our resources page you can find links to some websites that will help you with your learning.
Food and Our Bodies
This half term we will explore why humans and animals need the right types and amount of nutrition, what the 5 main food groups are and why humans and animals need a balanced diet.. Children will learn that humans and some animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement, they will be able to discuss and name key bones and muscles and will explore the purpose of the skull and ribs.
Where on Earth are we?
This half term we will explore the seven continents, the five oceans, the North pole and South pole and the equator. Children will learn how to add these features onto a map, they will also explore maps and how zooming in and out using google allows them to see features of villages, towns, cities and counties at different scales. Children will also, learn that the Earth rotates on an axis every 24hours, which causes day and night, they will explore the international date line and 'time zones'.
Welcome to Year 3!!
It is so lovely to be back at school and to see everyone working so hard!
This half term we are going to learn about the Stone Age in history, rocks, fossils and soils in science, aboriginal journeys in art and much, much more, On our resources page you can find links to some websites that will help you with your learning.
Rocks, Soil and Fossils
This half term we will dive under the earth to investigate the different types of rocks such as sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic . We will identify them and be able to explain how each rock type is formed and the different processes needed to create them. By looking at the fossils, we will find out what we can learn about other periods of history and where in the layers of soil and the earth these intriguing treasures are found.
The Stone Age
The Stone Age is a period in prehistory during which early humans began to use tools made out of stone to aid them in their everyday lives. This advancement in technology paved the way for the Bronze Age and Iron Age in which early humans learnt the limitations of their tools and how to improve them. Migration of humans from nomadic tribes allowed for the migration of trade, materials and resources across the time period. We will learn all about how the early humans communicated through their cave paintings, lived in and built their homes, hunted their food and developed their lifestyles to face the ever-changing climate.
