Class 3


Last term our topic was ‘Celebrations’.

In literacy we created poems about fireworks to link to Bonfire night and why it is celebrated. We also read lots of exciting information about the story of Rama and Sita. Just before Christmas, we looked at the book ‘Stick Man’ by Julia Donaldson.


In numeracy we did lots of adding and subtracting, finding odd and even numbers, comparing numbers and we also began looking at early multiplication by making ‘lots of’.

In topic we did lots of exciting science experiments, we set a rocket off into the sky and made a bridge (using paper) to help Sita cross the river.


At Christmas we had a very special visitor! Elvis the elf came to keep an eye on our class and each morning he set us a task or would leave something nice for us to do. We did lots of exciting writing about our class elf. We also took part in the Foundation Phase concert ‘Christmas with the Aliens’ it was a great success!
