What a year we have had, nearly at the end, yet still lots of exciting learning going on. Our theme this term is ‘Chocolate and Food.’ and we have been looking at where our food comes from, about the history of chocolate and how it is made.
 
In Literacy, we have used ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ chapter 14 - The Chocolate Room to write some fantastic descriptions. We have tried to add a variety to our writing using DADWAVERS! – (Description, Adverbs, Dialogue, Where, Action, Verbs, Estimation of time, Rhetorical questions, similes and metaphors, exclamation and onomatopoeia). The quality and variety of writing has become superb when we use these different techniques. We will be looking at persuasive writing next and thinking about the benefits of Fairtrade Food.
 
In Maths, we have been working on time. We are growing in confidence with telling the time on analogue clocks, converting to digital, 24 hour and time taken for activities.
 
In PE, we have been working on our striking and fielding skills, how to throw, catch, bowl, bat and our field placement. We have played rounders, cricket and games linked to these two; such as snake rounders. We have also worked on our sprinting technique.
 
In ICT, we have been looking at using fonts and pictures, to create a striking image to get the message across. This is through designing a wrapper for a new chocolate bar, persuading people to buy our chocolate bar and an advertising campaign to go with it.
 
In RE, we have been learning about Judaism and the daily life of a Jew. We have been learning about the religion and why people follow a religion and what they learn from it.
 
Just a few weeks left and then on to Year 4. However, still some exciting things to look forward to before then.
