Our Learning in Week 13

A Trip Down Under, Off to America and then A FANTASTIC FINISH!


This week may be one of our busiest weeks to date. We begun the week with an email from The Gingerbread Man who had sent us a video of his travels in Australia. We found out that Australia is surrounded by a lot of oceans, has lots of sharks and kangaroos and even saw an aboriginal man play the didgeridoo. 


During all of this, we have been gearing up for our FANTASTIC FINISH. This is an end to our topic where we use all of our learning to do something fantastic. We have been busy collaborating to plan and make our favourite landmarks from around the world. We have learnt so much from The Gingerbread Man's travels that we had a hard time choosing just one to make. At the end of the week, we will turn our classroom into the 'world' as we view it, using our landmarks and lots of other resources. What a fun way to end our topic. 


In Phonics we have begun Phase 3 and are learning the phonemes:


                                                         j   v    w   x
