Spring Term - Space
Enterprise, Science and design Technology
As part of our science and design technology, we were faced with a challenge to design and create both a space vehicle and the perfect parachute. We had to work as a team and think carefully about the size of our models, the most appropriate material to use and how to make our structures strong, safe and fit for purpose. Take a look at our learning below.
In Numeracy our learning has included using our knowledge of place value to add and subtract a single digit from a teen number. We have also explored doubling and halving objects, shapes and quantities and counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. Don't forget to keep practising!
World Book Day
To celebrate World Book Day we had great fun dressing up as our favourite book characters. We shared books with each other and talked about our favourite stories. Take a look at our wonderful costumes.
Autumn Term- Dreamworks
In Class 3 this term our topic is Dreamworks.
Our learning began with an exciting challenge linked to the Dreamworks film Madegascar. During the film Alex, Melman, Gloria and Marty become stranded on an island and need help to get back to the zoo. The children were invited to research, design, make and test a raft to help them make it home safely.
This is how they got on.........
Our Tricky Word Spellings
So far the children have been asked to learn the following sets of tricky words.
no, go, so
he, we, she, be, me
his, has, is
once, there, was, said
were, they, and
Keep practising at home and trying out all the different fun ways to help remember them.
Throughout the different areas this term, we will be exploring a number of different Dreamworks films including Trolls, Shrek, Madagascar and Shark Tale. Our challenges include learning to write character descriptions and making sure we remember all the non-negotiables (finger spaces, captital letters and full stops) in our sentences. In the numeracy area we will be ordering numbers and practising counting forwards and backwards from any given number. In the African art area we are going to create a silhouette painting. Thinking about how to use colour, pattern and shape.
Take a look at our learning so far.
Make £5 Blossom
As part of the challenge Class 3 set up 4 companies. Each company created a product to sell at the Christmas fair. These fantastic products included reindeer biscuits, fir cone snowmen, snowflake tree decorations and peppermint creams. We were very pleased with our profit of £137. The children worked very hard to make this challenge a success.
