Another short and full-to-the-gills week in Year 3.
We were extremely lucky last Friday to have had a break in the weather which enabled us to enjoy the short-lived but very welcome sunshine during the Coronation celebrations picnic. It was a lovely end to a busy but heart-warming day. We do hope you enjoyed the long weekend, despite the rain.
We also wanted to share the following video from our Year 3 and 4 Verse Speaking and Singing from last Friday. You can watch it here
Performances: 3D – The Koala who Could 3O – The Gecko and the Echo 3P – The Lion Inside All – Eye of the Tiger and The Magic Travel Machine 4B – Insect Day 4P – Make Friends with a Tree 4R – An Alphabet for the Planet
As part of our in-class Coronation celebrations, 3D completed a diary entry. We spoke in depth about the events of the Coronation celebration, in particular thinking about how the King would be feeling during this time. Some of us followed writing structures and some of us did our own thing, but we all considered the thoughts and emotions of our new King and related this to the event information we had learnt about. Can you spot some humorous elements? Can you pick out the different key moments from the ceremony?
3D, you all really impressed Mrs Doyle with your first attempt at diary writing, well done to you all!
Last week saw patches of sunshine, in which the Origami Club took the opportunity of getting outside and enjoying the beautiful Back Lawn by making paper bird kites and flying them. Simple pleasures!
Take a look at our photos below.
Earlier this week, our main focus was on WellyBoot preparedness. We will have a special edition next week devoted to our experiences. We are sure there will be some sleepy-heads tonight….
We will also have an assembly celebrating Wellyboot Camp on Tuesday 23rd May at 8.30 – 9.00,. Mrs Porter’s class will be leading the assembly, but all Year 3 parents are very welcome to attend. The Year 2s will be coming along as well to see what fun they have in store next year!
Have a lovely weekend!
The Year 3 Team
