Today the children dressed up for our Back to the Future Day. We had a range of amazing costumes with people dressed up from the past, the future and as a book character. We had to share our costumes with you all.
As part of our reading week the children listened to the story of Leonardo and the Flying Boy. The children really enjoyed listening to the story and learned more about Leonardo da Vinci. The children were then set a challenge to create a display in a day. The children coloured in pieces of the Mona Lisa and then pieced this back together to create their own masterpiece. Their work was amazing!
Today the children in Year 3 had a visitor. Mark Carton was in our school as part of our reading week. He read The Book Spy with the children and gave actions that they had to do as he read certain words. The children then had a great time solving riddles. It was great to hear from an author.
Today the children were not allowed to use pens. The children were told that they had to create a performance about an author from the past. The children in Year 3 loved learning about Dr Seuss and his stories. The children then used their performance time to tell their audience a little bit about Dr Seuss and then performed actions to his story Oh, The Places You’ll Go. The children loved Dr Seuss’ phrase…
The more that you read, the more you things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
This week in English, the children have been working hard to improve their recount writing. The children were given a new checklist for their informal letters topic and were set the challenge of making these even better than their last piece. The children were so successful that we decided to have a sharing afternoon and the children read their work to the children on their tables. Well done Year 3!
Don’t forget that we are holding our Reading in Strange Places competition again this year.
Get out and about with a book then take a photo, print it off and bring it in after the holidays.
The competitive teachers are also looking for the strangest places over the holidays.
Just found this beautiful video made by the wonderful Miss O Reilly from reading week. It is so wonderful to hear their favourite parts from reading week.
Don’t forget that we are hosting a reading workshop for year 6 parents and pupils on Wednesday, March 22nd at 3:30pm – 4:30pm.
We sent a questionnaire home to see if any other year groups would be interested in an event like this. It’s not too late to reply!
