Trewirgie Junior School

Our topic for Spring term 2020 is......

'What will be the next dinosaur?'

This term Year 3 will be asking ‘What will be the next dinosaur?’. We will start by looking at dinosaurs to understand what extinction means and how animals can and have become extinct. We will be examining real artefacts to investigate how we know the dinosaurs existed and what their remains tell us about these ancient creatures. Our science this term focuses on animal biology and they will be drawing on their understanding to help answer these questions. We will also be looking at different types of animal, how they have evolved to adapt to their environment and how a habitat works. We will use what we discover to make our own fossil, dinosaur sculptures and create our own creatures.


After half term, we will be visiting Newquay Zoo to help show us that extinction is still a problem today. We we will be trying to understand the reasons why some animals are endangered and, more importantly, what we can do about it. In geography we will be looking at different habitats around the world and locally. We will be exploring the impact climate change, pollution and deforestation is having on our world. At the end of our topic, we will be raising money to help fund conservation charities, adopt some endangered animals and the things we can do to make the world a better place.
