Remote Learning in Class 3
As we entered the new year, we also entered our third national lockdown which meant working from home and learning from home. We are now 4 weeks into our remote learning and we have completed copious amounts of activities! This term our topic is Little Blue Planet, so we have been focusing on the water cycle and rivers.
In English, we learnt about Toki fulfilling his rite of passage in the rainforest. As this was a narrative piece, we concentrated on paragraphs, expanded noun phrases, direct speech and different types of clauses. Using all of these features we wrote a narrative from Toki’s perspective.
In our Topic lessons, we have been focusing on the water cycle and a river’s journey from the highlands to the ocean. Class 3 used Google Maps to track the River Stour to its original source.
In Science, we are looking at the three states of matter. We have conducted two experiments, one focusing on evaporation and the other focusing on freezing. Class 3 have learnt that liquid evaporates when the temperature increases and freezes when the temperature decreases.
Our newest RE topic focuses on listening and sharing, so we listened to the story of the stone soup and shared our creativeness by designing posters asking for donations for our local food bank. We are now learning about the sacrament of Eucharist.
Please enjoy looking through the pictures of all our hard work so far this term.
