Year 3 weekly timetable (subject to change)

Term 6

This term we will be doing a geographical study of a South American country. The class have decided that we will be learning all about Brazil following on from the Olympics in Rio last year. During the topic the children will have the opportunity to find out what it is like to live in Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, study the human and physical features of the rainforest, and discuss and debate deforestation through the storybook ‘The Great Kapok Tree’.  The children also want to find out about different explorers. In the last few weeks we will be thinking about what makes an Olympic star and writing biographies about an Olympic athlete. The children will have the opportunity to study this exciting topic through their writing, art, DT and ICT.  In science we will be investigating sound, thinking about how sounds are made and how we hear them.
