Year 3 Spring Term

Spring Term 1

A predominantly geographical based topic
Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rains down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.
Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of historic Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava.
Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth’s breath-taking power.
