St Peter's Community Primary School

Year 3

This term in Lagoon Class...

Spring Term:  Year 3 have just started their exciting new topic: ‘Erupting Earth’, in which they are learning all about earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis. They began the topic spending the afternoon role playing emergency aid workers and trying to organise the school as a relief centre following a terrible natural disaster. They all agreed that there was a lot to think about and it was a very tricky task! We have lots of exciting activities planned from mixed media art work, to choreographing and performing volcano dances, to learning about the catastrophic effect of the eruption of Pompeii in AD79. We will be making our own volcanoes in a few weeks and experiencing what it is like to climb a steep (dormant) volcano with a trip to Boulder Brighton on 8th February – so please look out for the letter with more trip details.

Please note that our PE timetable has changed with PE on Monday afternoon and Thursday morning, so please do ensure your child’s PE kit is in school on these days and indeed we ask that it is in school every day, since sometimes there are unexpected PE opportunities.

A couple of things to bear in mind for after half term. Book week is for the whole of the week commencing 4th March. We will be having lots of book related activities during that week, including a dress up as your favourite character on Friday 8th, so keep an eye out for more details of these in the coming weeks! Our topic after half term will start with a trip to Brighton Museum on 28th February, so you may like to make a note of these in your diaries now.
