We are the Year Three Children!

Welcome to the summer term!

In Year 3, our topic is 'People on the Move'. In History, we will be exploring the battle for power and territory between the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and how certain ruler's decisions affected this dynamic and life in Britain. In Geography, we will be learning about natural disasters in our topic 'Extreme Earth' where we will look at volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes, understanding how they are formed and how they affect the people that live near them. In Science, we will be understanding the importance of plants and their life cycle and creating enlarged flower artwork in art in the style of Georgia O'Keefe. 

To link with our topic, we will be reading 'How to Train your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell as well as 'Tuesday' by David Weisner and 'Journey' by Aaron Becker. These books will give us lots of inspiration for our English work throughout the term. 

I can't wait to see the work the children produce in their final term of Year 3!
