We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and happy new year! Our new learning adventure is called Coming to America. We will be focusing our work on the books Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them and Snow White in New York. We will also be looking at North America as a continent, the human and physical features and the states of the USA. Miss O’Connell will be the class teacher and Mrs Brown will be the teaching assistant. Mrs Webster will teach art on Monday mornings and Miss Beaumont will teach PE on Thursday afternoons. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to see me before and after school or ring the school office if you need to speak to me.
On Monday 7th January, 3AO had a great time reading descriptions of different beasts and then designing their own. They sketched them out and then labelled the key features of them such as the colours, textures, shapes and sizes.
Writing an Adventure Story - Monday 21st January
In literacy this week, we will be writing our own adventure stories based on Newt and Niffler. We have planned the stories on a story board and will now be looking at how to write an opening, build up, dilemma and resolution to our stories.
Maths No Problem
We have just finished Chapter 4 of our MNP books and are now moving onto looking at measurement. Today we have learnt how to measure in cm's and have used our rulers to help us. We also were able to answer tricky questions about measurement independently and in our pairs too!
DT - Moving Monsters
This half term we have been looking at different construction methods and have been designing our own Moving Monsters. On Wednesday 23rd January we had a great time making our Moving Monsters with parents and carers who came in to help. The children then decorated their monsters in class and the finished products are fantastic!
In 3AO we have been looking at Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' and have been practising singing the song as well as clapping out the rhythm. We also have been lucky enough to use the Boom Whackers in class. We have looked at the differences in notes and how that changes the pitch.
