Class 3 have had a very busy and enjoyable term so far!
Our topic of volcanoes has really caught the imaginations of all the children and we have been inundated with lots of brilliant information from home about different volcanoes around the world. The children have been extremely interested in all the technical terms to name parts of volcanoes.
Linking to our topic we have been reading a book called Escape to Pompeii which is a story about 2 children who managed to escape from the great eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. We put ourselves in the shoes of the different characters in the story and thought about how we might feel if we had to flee our hometown and the destruction that was left. We have been working hard to think of powerful words and phrases to describe volcanoes when they are active.
In Maths we have been learning all about time! We have been using lots of opportunities to practice reading analogue and digital times.
Our trip at the end of January to The Anvil in Basingstoke with the Orchestra Unwrapped was such a special afternoon for all of KS2. We all learnt a lof about all the different instruments in an orchestra and thoroughly enjoyed hearing the wonderful music of many late musicians, as well as the modern day 'How to Train your Dragon' music. What an afternoon to remember!
We are looking forward to learning about the Romans after half term.
