Out of this World

Year 3 – The Land of Fire and Ice:

In Year 3 we are taking inspiration from our class read ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’ which is set in Iceland.

We will be looking at the geography of Iceland; using an atlas to find where it is as well as researching some key information such as capital city, population and currency. Towards the end of the topic we will be looking at the volcanoes in Iceland. We will even make some replica volcanoes ready for our celebration event – prepare for an eruption! There is also mention of Viking Gods in the class text and we will be looking at the Gods and then a timeline of the Viking history and invasions. There will be opportunities to create pieces of art on the Northern Lights using watercolours as well as using our music knowledge to create music depicting a volcanic eruption. Throughout our topic we will use technology to help us research and present our work using a range of apps.

We look forward to showing you all our fabulous work at our celebration event!
