Green class are continuing to read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and have been busy producing pieces of work such as a report on Oompa Loompas and descriptions of The Chocolate Room. In Maths we have been learning all about different types of graphs; drawing and interpreting them, and also learning about how different religions worship in RE lessons.

Green class have been learning all about fair trade as part of our chocolate topic and also doing literacy work based on Charlie and the Chocolate factory. In maths we have been doing practical work on money; adding it, subtracting it and working out change. Miss Porter has been teaching French and we now know some words about families.
In Green Class we have just started our new chocolate topic and are all looking forward to finding out more about its history and where it comes from. Our new class story is called ‘The dragon with a chocolate heart’ and we are already gripped by the mysterious plot. We have also been learning about how to stay safe online and written some eSafety recipes. We enjoyed our first swimming session this week, and look forward to Miss Porter joining our class as a student teacher for the next 8 weeks.
We have had a wonderful start to the year, learning about lots of new and exciting topics. Year 3 have particularly enjoyed learning all about World War 2; they have read ‘Grandpa’s Great Escape’ by David Walliams which is about an old RAF pilot, and we have just started a new story called ‘Wave me Goodbye’ by Jacqueline Wilson which is about an evacuee. Green class are really looking forward to our ‘Evacuee Day’ which is coming up soon.
We have also been learning all about Light in Science. We now know all about sun safety, light sources and shadows. Green class also tested out different materials to see which would be best to use as blackout curtains.
The iPads are getting lots of use in our classroom too. We have used them to do research on evacuees, practise our times tables and even do reading comprehension activities. We have also learned how to use QR codes to help us get to websites quickly.
We are looking forward to starting some new topics after half term.
