World of Water

Croeso! Welcome back! We are so excited to have everybody back in school and to start our brand new topic, 'World of Water'. This is a Science based topic which will give us plenty of opportunities to carry out experiments and investigations!  We will be looking at the water cycle, different types of clouds, animal and plant life in water, food chains and sustainability. 

 

Our big questions for this topic include:

- Where does rain come from?

- What is a food chain?

- How can I help our world of water?

 

We will also be adding to these big questions through pupil voice as we explore the topic.

Below is our topic overview for our 'World of Water' topic:

 

Winter Workshop

Our final project of the Autumn term is 'Winter Workshop'. This project has  a STEM and Design and Technology focus.  The children will spend time planning, designing and creating their own snow globes.  As well as a heavy D&T focus with the design and making process, we will also be exploring the properties of materials to inform our decisions. 

 

Our big questions for this project include:

-  Why do we use different materials for different objects?

- How will I make a snow globe?

A Place in Time

Our project for the next 4 weeks is called 'A Place in Time'. In Year 3, we will be looking at 'The Past 20 Years'.  We will be exploring major events and changes in clothes, toys and technology. 

 

Our big questions for this topic include:

New Beginnings!

Welcome back!  We are all so excited to see Year 3 on Thursday 3rd September 2020.
