Year 3/4 Octopus Afternoon Learning

Spring Two

Our new topic in Science this term is 'light'. We will learn about the different sources of light as well as about reflection and invisible light like UV light from the sun. We will discuss the dangers of UV light, and how to stay safe in the sun.

In Encompass, we will move on to learning about modern Egypt, focusing on the geography of the country and discussing the climate in which Egyptians live in.

Spring One

In science, we will be continuing the topic of plants as we move into spring. We can then see for ourselves the new plants growing as the weather changes, and discuss how plants grow and recreate. 


In Encompass, we are starting a new and exciting topic of Egypt! We will begin by looking at Ancient Egypt and the importance of this period of history before moving into modern Egypt and discussing the geography and land use in this area of the world. 

Autumn Two

In our afternoon curriculum, we are beginning a new topic 'Somewhere to Settle'. This will involve learning about what natural resources helped people during history to decide where to build their settlements, and learning about the differences between urban and rural settings. 


In science, we are researching the topic of plants. We will begin by revisiting prior learning about different trees, before dissecting plants, watching how water absorbs through them and learning the role of each part of a plant!

We are going to have a brilliant first term together! 


In Science, we are learning all about magnets. We will discuss how magnets produce a force, and how the earth is similar to a magnet itself! Finally, we will discuss which objects are magnetic, all through interactive learning and plenty of experiments!



Our Encompass topic this term is Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be learning about daily life in those times, through practical learning, reading texts and workshops. We can then consider how life changed moving through to the Bronze and Iron Age, before comparing it to our own lives.
