On behalf of the staff and children of Year 3, a very warm welcome back to everyone after the Half Term break! We hope that you all enjoyed a restful week and managed to enjoy the wonderfully sunny autumnal days!
Class 3 have returned to school fighting fit and have definitely shown that they are ready to work very hard again this term! They have written their ‘hot task’ quest stories this week based on the book ‘The Ice Palace’ by Robert Swindells and have included in them many of the writing techniques that they learnt last term such as adding adjectives, similes and adverbs. As well as setting the scene in their stories, introducing their characters, creating a problem and resolving it, the children have also learnt how to vary their sentence length to add tension or to write description. Brilliant- very well done Class 3- you are all super writers!
Next week we are excited to start studying our new book for the term, ‘Pebble In My Pocket’ by Meredith Hooper, in which the history of a simple pebble is explained. This is a beautiful book to stimulate interest in the natural world. It also fits in really well alongside our Science project on Rocks and Fossils and this term’s topic on Volcanoes and Earthquakes.
So we are all looking forward to another busy, productive and fun term of learning in Year 3!
