  • Year 3 will be basing our work around “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory “by Roald Dahl, It would be fantastic if you could support the children out of school by helping them to read the book and/or watch the film to get them all ready for learning in class.


In Literacy this week, we will continue looking at ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl. Having explored the characters, we will now turn our attention to the different rooms found in the factory. We will look closely at how Roald Dahl describes the rooms and will collect exciting vocabulary. We will be starting to write our own setting descriptons with a  particular focus on prepositions of place. By the end of the week the children will have created their own chocolate factory room. This will be used as a launch pad to writing their own adventure story inside ‘Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory’.


Setting, imagine, describe, justify, vocabulary, phrases


This week the children will work on consolidating their understanding of addition and subtraction with Great British Pounds. They will also work on giving change, using both £ and p in practical contexts.

The children will start to explore the exciting world of the Aztecs. To introduce them to the Aztecs, the children will focus on Aztec art. They will be covering the techniques of weaving this week and printing. They will be using these skills to create an Eye of God and will be tie-dying fabric to print on using their own printing blocks.


Aztecs, weave, print, fabric, resist, geometric, repeated patterns


The children will continue to develop their safer searching skills. They will understand which search engines are appropriate for their use. In addition, discussions and teaching will place an emphasis on how to keep safe online.

Kunst met een grote K

De leerlingen van Year 3 en Year 4 bouwen deze week aan een woordbank met woorden die te maken hebben met het thema ‘Kunst met een grote K’. Ook kiezen ze een kunstwerk van een kunstenaar uit de Lage Landen waarover ze een fantasieverhaal schrijven in de stijl van ‘Het grote Rijksmuseum voorleesboek’. De verhalen krijgen zeker een plekje in ons Muurseum.

De leerlingen van Year 5 werken verder aan hun kunstenaarsprofiel. Ook zij starten met het schrijven van een fantasieverhaal gebaseerd op een kunstwerk van een kunstenaar uit de Lage Landen.
