Active Planet

The term has started well and the children are settling into Year 3 and looking forward to the challenges ahead!
We have a very exciting theme this term, ‘Active Planet’, which incorporates science, geography, music, history,
technology and art. In short we are looking at the world of volcanoes. During the unit the children will be looking at:
 How the earth is formed
 What a volcano island is and where they are found in the world
 How do you put together a survival kit?
 What happens when a volcano erupts?
 What happens when rock melts?
 The devastation of Pompei
 Hot and cold colours in art to represent volcanoes.
