This term Year 3 will become volcanologists, we will be learning about the causes of a volcano and the impact that volcanoes have on Earth. We will compare volcanoes to other natural disasters (such as earthquakes and tsunamis) and compare and contrast. We will learn to label a volcano and we will use this knowledge to create our own.
In Science we are learning all about Rocks and Soils. This term we are going to become rock detectives and we are going to explore how different rocks are used throughout school, and begin to decide which types of rocks are useful for specific purposes. We will describe the features and properties of rocks based on how they feel and look. Rocks can be separated into three different categories, igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic depending on how they were formed.
