Term 1 in P3a!

This term has been really busy!

We have loved our topic of chocolate and reading our class novel – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which we finished this week!

Miss Christie asked us what we thought of the book and Kayla responded saying

“It has been fantastic!”

We really have loved it! The ending was great when Charlie got the factory from Mr Wonka and we also found lots of parts funny! Especially when Violet turned into a giant blueberry!

We received a letter from Mr Wonka telling us he was planning on closing his factory. We didn’t want that to happen so we decided to write him a letter to try and persuade him not to.  We have written lots of other persuasive letters too and created posters.

As an end of term treat we joined up with our Buddies P5a and Mr Drysdale to make chocolate covered apples with sprinkles. It was god fun and we got to eat them too! Yummy!

Have a fantastic holiday!

This week in P3a

In Primary 3a this week we started our topic of Chocolate. We have been learning about the story of where chocolate comes from. It is really amazing! We didn’t know about the cacao bean before. We sequenced the process in order and watched a clip inside a chocolate factory – it showed us how the chocolate is made. It was really cool!

We are really enjoying our class novel ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. This week we started to create posters to advertise Willy Wonka’s last GOLDEN TICKET! We have had lots of great ideas and have been using good vocabulary to persuade someone to buy a Wonka bar!

In science we made Rebops which was really fun! We will be using them next week to explore inheritance.

Watch out for photos next week!
