Class 3 have worked hard over the past couple of weeks to prepare an advent assembly for the school and parents. We talked about the true meaning of Christmas and why we celebrate this special time of year. Everyone has been working really hard to project their voices and remember their lines.
This week we have been learning all about instruction writing. Today we had a go at baking cupcakes. We worked in groups of six to follow the recipe carefully, each taking it in turns.
After the cakes were baked and had a chance to cool down we decorated them. We had a choice of three different jams to spread on the top of our bun and some different types of fruit we could chop and add to the top.
Finally, we had the very important job of testing that the cakes were ok for human consumption. It was a very serious business, we didn't want to offer them to people without giving them a thorough taste test first!
Class 3 have been finishing off their Termors topic by learning all about tectonic plates. We learned that the earth's crust is made up of huge slabs of rock which move very slowly. We recreated transform, divergent and convergent movements with Oreo biscuits.
We finished off our week with the debut performance of James and the Giant Peach. We have been learning all about script writing in literacy. We took sections of the Roald Dahl book and worked in groups to turn it into a play script. We worked hard to learn our lines and add expression and actions to performance. We really enjoyed showing the school and parents our work!
We had a great time at our parents afternoon. Thanks to the power of a time travelling shawl, we got to meet the scientist Mary Anning. We interviewed her to find out all about her fascinating life and her work with fossils. We then went to make our own fossils using play dough, plaster of paris and shells. Have a look how they turned out!
Class 3 managed to blow the staff away with their incredible homework! The creativity and effort put in is really impressive! What do you think?
Class 3's mind blowing homework
We have been preparing to put on a performance for the rest of the school. We are reading James and the Giant Peach in class and have turned parts of it into scripts. Here you can see us working in groups to transform bits of the book into scripts which we will act out. We can't wait to show the rest of the school!
