Denby Dale First & Nursery School

Welcome to Year 3

The first half of our Spring Term has been very busy, on our class page you will find our amazing work and what is coming up for the second half. 


In Geography we have been focusing on volcanoes: finding out how they are formed, the different parts of a volcano and looking at some famous volcanoes. The children have worked very hard in making a class 3D volcano. 

In the second half of the Spring term we will continue with Geography and learn about earthquakes


We have had a lot of fun learning about light ad shadows in Science and have conducted experiments to see the effects of light. In the second half term of spring we will develop our scientific minds and learn about forces and magnets. 

D&T/ Art

 In Design and Technology we have been using our scientific knowledge to make shadow puppets and paper puppets. In Spring we will be focusing on Digital Media (scanning our own wallpaper and changing colours) and William Morris – Printing.
