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 Spring 2!
This half term we are going to learn about "how is climate cool?" in geography, "how does your garden grow?" in science, make stuffed peppers in DT and much, much more, On our resources page you can find links to some websites that will help you with your learning.
How does your garden grow?
This half term we will explore plant parts, water transportation, how much water plants need to grow and what a day in the life of a flower is like. Children will learn that flowers are the reproductive organs of the plant, leaves catch sunlight and use this to make food, roots help to anchor the plant to the soil and the stem transports the water to the plant through tubes called xylem. Children will explore through an investigation, fair testing and drama activity. Children will also learn that plants have different requirements for life and growth, how plants disperse their seeds and how flowers are the reproductive organs of the plant.
How is climate cool?
This half term we will explore how climate is cool. Children will learn the difference between the weather, climate and biome. They will also explore what the polar regions are like, where the hottest, direst places in the world are, where the hottest, wettest places in the world are and will understand which climate zone and biome we live in. Children will also, be provided with new knowledge about flora and fauna changes in the seasons, what a tundra biome is and which country is in the Temperate Deciduous forest biome.
Welcome back to Spring 1!
This half term we are going to learn about how unpleasant the Bronze and Iron Ages were in History, light and shadows in science, famous buildings in Art and much, much more, On our resources page you can find links to some websites that will help you with your learning.
Light and Shadows
This half term we will explore why light is needed to see things, why light from the sun can be dangerous and why light only travels in straight lines.. Children will learn that light is reflected from surfaces to see them, they will be able to discuss why dark is the absence of light and investigate how a shadow is formed.
How unpleasant were the Bronze and Iron Ages?
This half term we will explore how life was different in the Bronze and Iron Ages. Children will learn that in the Bronze Age, people worked with copper, tin, gold and bronze; in the Iron Age people learned to make iron to make weapons. They will also explore the grave of a man dating to around 2,300BC that was discovered 3 miles away from Stonehenge. Children will also, learn that people in the Bronze and Iron Age lived in different communities, they will have group discussions about whether they think home life was much better in the Iron Age or the Bronze Age.
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.
