Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome back! This half term, the children in Year 3 are going to be learning about Natural Disasters. This means that our key driver subject this half term is Geography and the children will be exploring a variety of enquiry questions such as:

What is a ‘natural disaster’?

What causes an earthquake and why do some cause more damage than others?

How do communities protect themselves from natural disasters?

Why are some places more prone to natural disasters than others?

In Science, the children will be learning all about Rocks, Fossils and Soils, where they will engage with a variety of enquiry questions such as:

How did Mary Anning's work help us to understand pre-historic life?

What happens to soil when water is added to it?

How can I group these rocks based on their physical appearance and physical properties?

Is there a pattern where we find volcanos on planet Earth?

How are fossils formed? 

Our Scientist for this half term is Mary Anning



In Music, the children are going to be learning how to play the recorder. They will be learning how to play the instrument using a limited note range of A,B and G and they will be using simple stick notation as a guide.
