Welcome to Year 3!
Your teacher is Miss Rushton and our Teaching Assisstant is Mrs Williams.
During the summer term, our Geography topic will be to find out all about the United Kingdom.
For further research at home, why not have a look at this useful informtion about the UK: resources.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/customs/questions/britain/uk.htm
Later in the Summer term, we will be researching and discussing how the land use has changed in Manchester and what impact this has had on the city and the environment.
Can you think of any buildings in Manchester that are used for something different today than they were in the past?
Can you think of any new buildings that have been built in Manchester in recent years?
In science this term we will be finding out about light and shadows. We will discuss different sources of light, how we are able to see, materials that reflect light, how shadows are formed and how shadows change.
Here is a fun interactive activity and quiz on light and shadows that you can try at home: www.bbc.co.uk/schools/scienceclips/ages/7_8/light_shadows.shtml
