Welcome to Year 3
Miss Wilton and Mrs Simcox
Year 3 Class Teachers
OUR LEARNING THIS YEAR:
WELCOME BACK! Hoping you all had a great half term and are ready for a busy Christmas term!
Over the course of the year, the children in Year 3 are lucky enough to learn about many wonderful topics in all of their subjects. This half term, our Cornerstones topic will be 'Tremors' and our text will be 'The Firework Maker's daughter' by Philip Pullman. during the topic, children will explore how and why volcanoes erupt, various world volcanoes and will look in depth at the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii in Ancient Rome. We will create our own volcano in Design and Technology also! A fun topic indeed!
