Meteor Class (Year 3)


Spring Term 2017 topic

Extreme Earth

This term year 3 will become scientists and explorers. We will be exploring the different extreme climates: from the heat of the Sahara desert to the freezing cold of the Arctic, from lava bursting volcanoes to ice covered mountains.  Year 3 will be taking part in experiments as well as following in the footsteps of Sir Ernest Shackleton. We will be looking into different explorers and expeditions to the Polar Regions as well as thinking about what we would need to survive in different extreme weather conditions.

Year 3 will also be delving into the lives of the animals that live in the different extreme climates. We will be thinking about adaptation and how different animals are suited and evolved to live in different climates. Along with this we will be exploring what it would be like to live in an area affected by extreme weather conditions.
