This week in Year 3
Another week of learning in Year 3 culminated in the children proudly showing their work on Friday morning to their parents. The Year 3 pupils took great pleasure in spending some time carefully choosing the pieces of which they were most proud. They also took care to ensure that their books and the classrooms reflected this pride in the progress they had made since the beginning of the year. We would like to thank parents who were able to come into school to share this delight with their children.
We delved into a new topic this week and have been looking at The Tunnel story by Antony Brown. An adventure story that sees two siblings unite together as they journey through a mysterious tunnel… Year 3 have explored all aspects of the story; investigating the characters and the settings and have used comprehension skills to discuss their thoughts on the story so far. As the next couple of weeks progress the children will build on their comprehension and writing skills and will be creating their own version of the story to end our unit. We are all excited to see the Year 3 creativity skills fly within this task!
Topic – The Geography of the United Kingdom
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful pictures you have sent into school in the wide variety of places in the UK that the children have visited. They have been so excited to see themselves on our Geography boards and it has helped them to create an image in their heads of where these landmarks and cities are located.
From the Year 3 Team
