Year 3 - Chestnut 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Chestnut's class page!
This year we are looking forward to many interesting topics. Our first topic is Blue Abyss which has a Science focus. This exciting topic will devlop the Children's knowledge of the world under the sea. Children will observe deep sea divers and will explore the world's many oceans to discover the beautiful wildlife that lives amongst us.
Grab your wetsuit. We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures. Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Can you pick a favourite fish, plant or animal? What do real divers get up to below the surface? Create a fishy story about exploring an amazing underwater world. Time to go a little deeper into our seas. Make a model deep sea submarine that can withstand great pressure and travel to the deepest, darkest places on Earth. Make sure you test it first. What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioluminescent sea creatures. Look closely and create a colourful, 3-D art exhibition when you rise to the surface. Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the Blue Abyss.
