DREAM BIG IN YEAR 3!
Welcome to Class HA
A great big welcome to WJS and to life in Year 3.
Spring 1- Passion for Trashion
This half term we are moving on to Passion for Trashion, where we will learn all about recycling and become designers, creating outfits out of recycled materias. Once created, we will be putting on our very own Trashion Show to show off all our fabulous designs. This will be held on the 10th February.
What else have we got to look forward to?
Well...... our focus this term will be on Design and Technology. We will investigate properties of materials, then use this knowledge to design our outfits and create them with the help of parents (look out for your invite to our creative day held on the 3rd February).
Along with music with Mr Sills, we will be composing our own music using the Garage Band! You may even get a taster of this during the Trashion Show.
Our science this term allows us to investigate electricity, finding out where it comes from and creating our own circuits. Maybe we have some budding electricians in the making!
In English we will be focusing on the author Colin Thompson. We will also be improving our letter writing skills.
We can't wait for this half term and are looking forward to working alongside parents/carers to help make this topic a HUGE success!
