Year 3 Welcome Letter Autumn Term 2017


In English today we learnt about Authorial Intent. We participated in an Instructional Intelligence tactic called a Round Robin to collaboratively share ideas about why most fairy tales are set in forests. We then had a go at drawing conclusions about why Carol Ann Duffy may have chosen to set out text, The Lost Happy Endings, in a forest.



Today was Keeping Ourselves Safe Day. A police officer came in to speak to us about road safety and stranger danger. We all listened beautifully and learnt lots of strategies to keep ourselves safe.

Entry point 31.10.17

We walked up Church Street to the Garden Café and had a look at all of the beautiful plants in the shop. We bought two little pots of ivy and then came back to school and planted them in the planter boxes in the front playground. It was so much fun and we can’t wait to see them grow and fill the boxes!

Exit Point 17.10.17

After 7 intensive weeks of learning about Ancient Egypt we invited our grown-ups to the official opening of our Ancient Egyptian Exhibition opening. The curators and historians in Year 3 set the classroom up as a gallery and showed off all of our amazing learning from this half term. We even had the opportunity to scan the QR codes around our classroom so we could share interesting facts with our visitors!

Turtle Back  13.10.17

We used our outstanding reading skills to research Cleopatra individually. We then participated in a cooperative activity called a Turtle Back. We each had a turtle shell and we wrote two fascinating facts about Cleopatra on it. We then waddled around our classroom and shared our facts with our peers.
