Year 3 - The Great Wave, by Mrs Harrison
Date: 2nd Oct 2020 @ 4:11pm
In our English lessons we have just finished the story 'Seal Surfer' by Michael Foreman. We were curious as to where the Grandfather had gone so acted in role as the boy and Grandfather on the phone to each other.
Continuing with our ocean theme, we have developed of our knowledge of the artist Hokusai and replicated the print 'The great wave of Kanagawa' using our sketching skills. Look how incredible they look!
Miss Yates, Mrs Holmes, Mrs Mighella, Mrs Wood and I are all extremely impressed with the results of our first spelling test this week. Absolute superstars! Thank you for all your support at home. We've loved looking through their homework books and have even started to display some of their work in the classroom!

Y1 - Week 3, by Miss Jones
Date: 18th Sep 2020 @ 10:17am
This week, our learning has been based on the most beautiful book called The Colour Monster. One day, Colour Monster wakes up feeling very confused. His emotions are all over the place; he feels angry, happy, calm, sad and scared all at once! To help him, a little girl shows him what each feeling means through colour.
First, we enjoyed listening to the story and discussing each of the different emotions. We then listened to different types of music and talked about how music can affect the way we feel. Then we made birthday cards for everyone in the class so that they feel happy on their birthday. Throughout the week, we have painted and collaged our own colour monsters for our art gallery and made emotion jars for a class display. In Maths, we have practised counting monsters, explored 2d shapes and found different ways to sort objects and monsters. We have also used role-play puppets to retell the story. In writing, we began learning how to use finger spaces and full stops when writing speech bubbles.
What a busy week we have had!
If you would like to listen to the story again, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih0iu80u04Y&t=303s
There is also a bonus quiz to try at the end.

Welcome to Year 3, by Mrs Harrison
Date: 7th Sep 2020 @ 4:24pm
Year 3 have been using a range of texts over the past couple of days. We have been focusing on emotions, how to express them and how to manage them through the books 'The colour monster' and 'Snow White and the angry dwarf'. We have also looked at changes, adaptations and hygiene through the following texts 'The koala who could' and 'Blow your nose big bad wolf'.
I wonder whether the Year 3s can recall one of the texts at home?
