Nurturing a life-long love of learning

Autumn Term

Welcome to Year 3 

We have some exciting topics to look forward to this year!  I hope that you enjoy our first one in line: 


Living On The Edge

During this topic we will be thinking about the geography of the world, from the crust right down to the core.  We will consider how the tectonic plates below the crust, floating on the mantle, make our mountains grow and cause natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. 






The Hall of Fame 


In our second topic we will discover the famous scientists of the past and present.  We will explore their inventions and scientific discoveries and use this background information to conduct our experiments and to support us in explain key scientific facts.
