Welcome to Turquoise Class, Year 3!
Our Topic this term is all about:
Volcanoes and ‘What makes ‘Mother Nature’ snap?’
This half term we will be finding out about volcanoes, what they are, how they are formed and the impact they have on humans, both positive and negative. We will also be investigating different rocks, thinking about how we classify and use them.
We are looking forward to an explosive start to term with a visit to The Sedgwick Museum and creating our own models of the earth and volcanoes. (If you haven’t already please bring in a plastic bottle you can use in your model as well as any old newspaper.)
We will be continuing French lessons which will be taught by a visiting Teacher from the Parkside Federation on a Tuesday.
This half term PE will be on Mondays and Wednesdays. Outdoor PE is focused on ball handling skills and will be in school on a Monday. Indoor PE is swimming, which will take place at The Abbey Pool. Please make sure your child has a swimming costume, towel, goggles and hat in school each Wednesday.
Your child also needs a named water bottle and a waterproof coat.
