MESSAGES

  • 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!
  • Please label all school uniform, snack boxes and water bottle to avoid items getting lost in school. Every child needs to have a water bottle to bring in each day. No glass containers please.
  • In the summer term, please ensure children wear sun hats on hot days to protect them when playing outside.

LITERACY

In Literacy we will be continuing work on our adventure stories based around ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. The children will explore the different settings from this book and then invent their own room to suit their character. This will be used as a launch pad to writing their own adventure story inside ‘Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory’.

MATHS

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.

THEMED LEARNING

“Chocolate”

The children will be having a first hand experience of the process of chocolate making from ‘bean to bar’ by visiting the Zotter’s Chocolate Factory.  Back at school they will be debating the big questions: Would you like to work on a cacao farm? They will examine the issues of children used to work on cacao farms and look into the issues of Fairtrade.

PHSCE

The children will be learning about the wider world and the interdependence of communities within it, specifically those communities involved the process of making chocolate.
