Year 3 - Beech

Hello Beech Class

I hope you are all ok and still managing to keep on learning!

You will find a list of activities below which are related to our Rocks, Relic and Rumbles topic.

There should be enough to keep you going for now but I will be updating the page and adding more things for you to do.


Mrs Dimbleby has also passed on some weblinks to me which are brilliant so I have added those as well.

(Thanks Mrs D.)

As always - remember your e-safety rules.


Try to make sure you continue to read and write everyday and complete some maths. You have your home learning packs but there is so much more you can do in addition to that and you'll find lots of ideas here on this page so keep checking regularly to see what has appeared! laugh


Don't forget that you can email me on


Hope to see you all soon.


Mrs Patterson. xx


Autumn 1 Topic - Brilliant bodies (Burps, bottoms and bile)


Here are some useful websites to visit:

  • Home Learning: 
  • Session 1 


    23rd March

    Build a paper mache volcano.


    Begin to build the paper mache volcano- do not put too many layers on at once as it will take a while to dry. 

    Session 2 


    25th March 

    Create a fact file, booklet or poster about different volcanoes around the world.

    Things to think about:

    Their height

    Where is the volcano?

    When did the volcano last erupt?

    What was the effect of the volcano erupting?

    Session 3


    27th March

    What causes earthquakes? (to be written in your workbook)

    Things to include:

    Plate movement 


    Locate hotspots

    Why are the hotspots there? 

    Session 4


    30th March 

    Continue with your paper mache volcano

    Continue to build up your volcano using strips of newspaper and paste. 

    Once dry, if you have paints you can paint it! 

    Session 5 


    1st April 

    Research the impact of earthquakes

    Things to include: 

    Short and long term problems- research newspaper reports and before and after pictures. 

    Write about these examples in your workbook. 

    Session 6 


    3rd April

    Research 'how is a tsunami linked to an earthquake?' 

    - find out and explain what a tsunami is.


    If you can, carry out an experiment to create a miniature tsunami. There is a video link to help you.

    Write about this as we did our scientific reports.

    Think about and answer- What do we want to find out?

                                           - What did we do?

                                           - Draw a diagram of a tsunami

                                           - What did we  find out? 

Remember to check MyMaths. There is a lot there for you to complete and I will be looking to see who has done it! 

The school and individual logins are stuck in the front of your reading record. 



How do you feel about producing a primary source of evidence for future historians?


We are experiencing something extraordinary at the moment. 

Think about the letters we looked at which were written by Pliny and told us about the eruption of Vesuvius. 

One day people will look back on this and want to know what we did. 

If you want to, you could keep a diary. Just a little bit each day to say what you've done, how you're feeling about it all and you could even interview your family members!


I'd love to read some of the entries you write if you want to email them to me. wink
