Class 3 have had a brilliant first half term learning about Cold Lands. We have been thinking carefully about the qualities you need to be a good school councillor. Over the half term holiday the children made posters and wrote speeches to persuade their peers to vote for them. There were lots of amazing efforts and we were really proud of all the candidates. After a very close vote, please find below our new councillors. Well done!
In Literacy we have been writing instructions. We loved following instructions to make hot chocolate. We have also been performing, reading and writing firework poetry. In Maths we have been focussing on developing our addition and subtraction skills. We have learnt a variety of strategies and we are learning to apply them when solving problems. In Science we have been learning about the properties of different materials. We completed an experiment to find out which material is the most water resistant. We found out how to make it a fair test and observe and record our results accurately. See the pictures below.
Welcome to Class 3!
We hope you have all had a lovely summer and are feeling ready for lots of fun and learning this year!
This term our topic is 'Cold Hands, Warm Hearts'. In Maths we are focussing on developing our understanding of the place value in numbers to 100. In Literacy we will be reading and writing about stories set in cold lands. We will be locating the Arctic and Antarctic on globes and finding out about the features of these areas. We will also learn about the animals that live there and how they are adapted to survive in the cold weather. In Art and DT we will be using our topic to inspire moving pictures and 3D sculptures based on cold lands. If you would like to find out more about out topic see the topic web attached below. We have sent home a topic homework and we are very excited to share all the wonderful work our class bring in.
During this term we also elect our school council. Two children will be chosen by our class to represent us on the council. We hope we will have lots of candidates to choose from!
