Summer 2 Money Matters
This half term we will be finding out where money comes from. Our focus will be on the jobs that people have that earn them money the skills that you need for different jobs and writing a job advert. Then we will look at how we spend money, learning about how you use a bank and have bank accounts before thinking about advertising and managing your money.
Below are photos of us playing job charades! We had to act out different jobs for others to guess!
Summer 1 Teamwork!
Class 3 are learning about how to be part of a team. We are learning that if we work as a team, the whole class can benefit and it has a positive impact on all the class members. We are thinking about what we think makes a good team, how our personal behaviour can affect others, working on our communication skills, being considerate to others, why disputes may happen and how we can work things out and, finally, what our personal responsibilities are to the team.
In the teamwork game below, we had to order ourselves from the lowest number to the highest, with the numbers on our backs and not talking! Wow - it was tricky!
Autumn 2 Think Positive!
Our mental health and wellbeing is a top priority and never more so than in our current climate. We are working on understanding how important it is to look after our mental health and wellbeing, equipping ourselves with various tools and strategies to deal with whatever happens in our lives. The class will be following a series of lessons this half term about thinking positively and how this can improve our outlook on life. We will be starting with what happiness is, discussing our thoughts and feelings with a range of emotions, changes in our everyday lives that may affect us and how to keep calm and relax. We will then move on to how the choices we make can affect our mental health and well being, as well as recognising the positive and negative habits that we may have.
