Larch - Y3


Welcome Message:


Welcome back, Larch Class! Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break. Did you make any New Year Resolutions?

We hope you are ready for an awesome term, Team Larch!


Our Topic: Shake, Rock and Roll


This term's topic will be Shake, Rock and Roll. We will become a team of geologists, palaeontologists, seismologists and jewellery experts finding out about rocks and fossils in a variety of forms.

This topic explores rocks and Earthquakes. We will learn about how and where they occur and use what we found out from our trip to the Natural History Museum last term too. We will find out about fossils and diamonds, lava, coal and everything in between!

(Please see the curriculum map below for more detail)
