In Literacy lessons, Chagwa class are reading 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl. We are planning to write, edit and improve our own newspaper articles related to the story, with a focus on punctuation (including speech marks) and paragraphs. We are using our literacy working wall to help us to track our learning journey, from planning, to editing and improving, to remind ourselves of the key features, and any tricky spellings! Chagwa are working hard to ensure that the presentation of their writing is neat and tidy across all curriculum subjects.


For Maths, Chagwa class are consolidating place value of up to 4 digit numbers.

Scientific Investigations

Chagwa class have been learning about states of matter, so we have been experimenting with solids, liquids and gases. For our first science experiment, the class made predictions on what would happen to ice, butter and chocolate when we melt them. We discovered that these solids turned to liquids when heated!


Class Camping Trip to Hotel Masongola

The topic theme this term is 'The History of Sir Harry's'. In line with this, the year 3/4 residential will be a camping trip to Hotel Masongola, where the children will learn more about the history of Zomba through a guided tour. The trip will also include a visit to the botanical gardens. The residential will take place on Thursday 18th October and Friday 19th October. Chagwa class are very excited!
