Autumn Term

Year 3 have had an exciting start to the term, learning about all things 'Dinosaurs'. We have taken them through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous period and looked at how dinosaurs evolved. We took a trip to Crystal Palace park and used our imagination to create and design our own dinosaurs. In Literacy we wrote our own dinosaur adventure stories, which included an element of suspense. In Science we learnt about Electricity and made our own complete circuits. We are looking forward to our trip to the Natural History Museum and taking part in a 'Dino Investigation Scene' workshop in December.

Power of the Earth!


Year 3 have been learning all about volcanoes this half term! We have spent time researching how volcanoes are made and labelled our own detailed diagrams. We also have been reading the story 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit and thinking about what life would've been like if you were trying to escape from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius! We have been using lots of descriptive language in our role plays and writing and took inspiration from rediscovered artwork in Pompeii to make our own Roman mosaics.



Spring Term
