Class 3 Learning
Welcome to class 3!
This half term our English work has been focused on Roald Dahl, starting with our Roald Dahl Day, which we shared with class 4. As well as this, we have invented our own ‘marvellous medicines’, rowed down the chocolate river to inspire our poetry work and devised our own Roald Dahl inspired characters.
We have also been enjoying regular French lessons which have focused on different ways of greeting people and saying how we are feeling. A french homework task involved finding out some fascinating facts about a famous French person to share with the rest of the class. We all learned a lot about a wide range of french people including Joan of Arc, Napoleon and Coco Chanel!
This term our topic is, “Journey through the ages” and we have travelled through the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. In English we read the story, “Stone Age Boy” and wrote our own time travel stories based on the structure of this. We also wrote some factual reports on the Stone Age village of Skara Brae. One of our homework tasks was to construct a model of Stonehenge using our choice of materials.
In science we have been investigating rocks, fossils and soils. We have learned how to identify sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks as well as sampling different soils to determine their rock content.
