YEar 3

Here's what we're learning this term:

Our Topic this term is...



We are learning all about volcanoes and earthquakes where we will find out all about the earth's layers and exactly how volcanoes and earthquakes occur. Not only that, in Art we will be creating our own paper mache volcano and then using science knowledge to make them erupt just like a volcano. 

In English, we are currently looking at diary entries based on the video ‘marshmallow’ and writing a diary from the perspective of the boy. In maths, we are super busy, currently looking at multiplication and division before moving on to money.



At woodlands, we currently have one session a week learning gymnastics. Maple class has Bristol sport leading this on a Tuesday morning however, Mulberry class will have Miss Lett leading in the afternoon.
