Welcome to a new decade! I hope you enjoyed a fantastic Christmas break and we all look forward to a great start to 2020 in Year 3.
A new term brings lots of new areas that we will be focusing on during the next few months. Our focus moves onto us exploring "Our Moving Earth", this is a wonderful opportunity for us to study our planet and basic geology as we look at soil, rocks and how they react/move to create earthquakes and volcanoes, including the chance for us to make our own volcanoes!
Later in this term, we have our first Y3 school trip to the brilliant Natural History Museum in London on the 28th of February 2020. This will allow the children to apply their learnings from "Our Moving Earth" and see the fantastic exhibits and samples that the Museum has to really complete the picture.
We will be issuing more information on our school trip in the forthcoming weeks so please keep your eyes peeled for this later in January.
As always if you should have any queries, questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Lynn via reception or in person after school.
