We teach minds to think, hands to do and hearts to love.

Class 3

Welcome to Class 3 - Summer Term 2021 

Wow! It is the Summer term already! The year is whizzing by! We hope you had a super Easter holiday and are raring to get going with your learning again. 

 

 

 This term our topic is called Jurassic Forest! 

We will be learning about what life was like during prehistoric times when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. What did they eat? How did they move? How many different kinds of dinosaurs were there? Why did they become extinct? 

 

If you’ve always wondered about these questions, you are going to love our topic this term. As part of the topic we will learn about the continents and oceans in Geography and which dinosaurs lived there. In history, we will learn about the life of Mary Anning who was one of the world’s first female paleontologists and what the Earth was like in prehistoric times.
