Year 3 2020 - 2021

Miss Thorpe

Welcome to Year 3! 

Welcome to Year 3's class page. 

Our next topic for this half term is....Natural Disasters! We will be learning about volcanoes, eathquakes and mountains in our Geography lessons. We will be linking these into our English lessons as we will be writing a newspaper report about a Natural Disaster. 

In Science, we are going to be exploring Rocks and Soils. We will be comparing and grouping together different kinds of rocks, describing how fossils are formed and recognising that soils are made from rocks and organic matter.


Our enquiry questions for this half term are:

1.How are mountains formed and why are they so important?

2.What is a ‘natural disaster’?

3.What causes an earthquake and why do some cause more damage than others?

4.Why are some places more prone to natural disasters than others?

5.How do communities protect themselves from natural disasters?
