Year 3 homework letters 2018-19

Dear Parent Carers,

We hope you enjoyed the Christmas service and our retelling of the classic poem, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’.

The Year 3 team wish you all a happy, restful and joy filled Christmas. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 8th January 2019! It will be the start of the Spring term and we will be working on our new topic ‘Tremors’.

‘Overwhelming and mighty, mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth!’ To find out more on what we have planned, check out the Topic Planner on the school website.

Science Our new science topic will be ‘Rocks’. We would like your child to research Mary Anning (1799-1847)

The research could be a poster, Fact File, story, biography, art piece, science demonstration, anything you can creatively think of.

An outline of Anning’ work can be found at - http://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/mary-anning-unsung-hero.html

You could also research another key scientist such as:

Inge Lehmann (1888-1993)

Alfred Wegener (1880 – 1930)

Tuzo Wilson (1908- 1993)

Marie Tharp(1920 – 2006)

Adriana Ocampo (1955 -) Space geologist  https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/people/1780/adriana-ocampo/

Here are other useful websites to use for some pre- learning over the Christmas holidays.

Thank you for all your support this term and have a very Merry Christmas.
