Memories of Year 3

Filed under Uncategorized

With the end of year just around the corner and Year 4 looming, I thought it would be nice for us to collect our memories of Year 3. Write down what things you can remember or what you enjoyed doing this year.

Super hero pictures

Filed under Lessons

We produced these pieces of artwork as part of our super hero writing week. We used a real photo of ourselves and collaged over it to create a costume. We then added text in the style of comic books.

Exaggerated similes

Filed under Uncategorized

Some children from our class were lucky enough to do  a poetry workshop with Brian Moses. Afterwards, they taught us how to write an exaggerated simile poem.

Here is an example of one line.

My glorious gorilla is as talented as a singer doing backflips on a trampoline.

Ten tired teachers

Filed under Lessons

We have been looking at lots of poems by Brian Moses this week. The first poems we wrote were based on his poem Behind the Staffroom Door.

Here is the first line to inspire you.

Ten tired teachers slumped in the staffroom at playtime,
one collapsed when the coffee ran out, then there were nine.

Free Viking show

Filed under General chat,Trip

Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you know about a free viking show which is taking place this weekend in Timperley (this is very close to Chorlton and South Manchester).

The show is part of the Altrincham Festival and takes place at the Timperley showgrounds on Saturday 2nd July. The Viking display starts at 1:30pm but there are other events beforehand.

I thought this might be a fun chance for you to see some ‘real life’ (of course it is people just pretending) vikings battling and there is even a chance for you to join in!

For more information about the Altrincham Festival, visit this website.


Have fun and tell us all about it if you go! 🙂

We can be heroes – just for one day!

Filed under General chat,Lessons

This morning, we came up with super hero / villain identities as part of our writing week.

What was your character called and what were their super powers?

Bug hunt artwork

Filed under Lessons

Today we created a chalk bug hunt on the paving outside our classroom. We drew lots of invertebrates, grass, leaves, flowers and other woodland features. Then, we left questions up for other people to answer about our work.

It was a nice opportunity to work outside of the classroom again and I was really impressed by the level of teamwork and communication on show.

Can you think of any other questions which we could ask people?

School Grounds Week – Tree faces

Filed under Lessons

We began our lesson by looking at the shapes of tree. We decided that certain parts of trees looked like faces and we looked for interesting faces to share with our partners.

Then, we used clay to make face sculptures on the trees themselves. We added natural materials which we had found on the floor to give them more detail and character.
