Spring Term - Space
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.
