Trewirgie Junior School

Our topic for Summer Term 2021 is......

'How does your Garden Grow?'

This term Year 3 will be asking ‘How does your garden grow?’. We will start by investigating the parts of a plant and what plants need to grow, in Science, before using this knowledge to grow some plants of our own. We will also learn about the lifecycle of a plant and create stop motion animations to explain this process. In Art we will be focussing on drawing skills and creating our own sketches of minibeasts. We will be composing our own music and thinking about how different instruments, pitch and tempo can help to represent the movement of different minibeasts. Our DT focus this term will be food. We will be thinking about hygiene and safety when preparing food and will explore taste, texture and smell of lots of different ingredients. We will also be looking at where food comes from, with a trip to Trevaskis farm.  We will then use our skills to design and make our own sweet or savoury salad.

As part of our legacy, the children will be looking at and comparing two different local environments. In Geography we will create our own aerial maps of the local areas, labelling key features of each environment. These maps, alongside our insect drawings, will form our legacy as we will design and make information maps to be displayed in Victoria Park.
