Year 3 Summer 1

This half term, Year 3 have been geologists. We have studied volcanoes and how they erupt, and made our own volcano models and caused eruptions by mixing chemicals.

We then learnt about different types of rocks and how they are formed, and conducted some scientific experiments to find out about the properties of different types of soil.

We had lots of fun studying William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, particularly concentrating on the fight scene at the beginning. We went outside to re-enact the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues.

We have continued to use the iPads to help us with our work. This half term we particularly enjoyed using the coding app Scratch Jr.
