Summer Term 2018
Year 3 are studying "The Rainforest" this term.
The children in Year 3 have been reading Rainforest animal rhyming poetry. They have listened to the poems, analysed the rhyme schemes, memorised the poems and then performed them with a view to creating their own.
Awesome Acting from Year 3!
What animals are we ?
Hard work from Year 3! They have been writing myths about Rainforest creatures, using “Just So” stories to inspire them.
Inspired to write.

Topic Day - our shelter.
The visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and H.M.S. Victory was interesting and enjoyable , despite the wet weather. We looked around the museum, found out about life on board The Victory and the different jobs that there were to do.
