What a way to kick off the new half term!
This week in Year 3, we have jumped right in to a new text called ‘Stone Age Boy’ to link in with our Stone Age topic!
On Monday, the children went on a scavenger hunt around the school to find different pictures to sequence on their own storyboard! It was so much fun that we didn’t even get to take as many pictures as we would have wanted…
Here are the ones that we did get…
What is your favourite picture from the story? Comment below!
Year 3 were lucky enough to watch a performance of ‘Emily Rising’ at the Hat Factory in Luton recently.
Organisers of the show then came to school to deliver workshops to the children on how to write a review of the performance and to open up discussions about what they particularly liked about the show.
Comment with your favourite part from the show!
Here are some pictures from the workshop…
In Year 3, the children have started a new reading program called Accelerated Reader.
Children have taken a STAR Reading test which gives them a reading range in their ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development), they then choose and read a book in their reading range in school and at home before taking a quiz on the book in school using one of our kindles.
If the children pass the quiz, the number of words that the children has read in that book gets added to their own individual word count as well as their classes.
Each child has a points target which is shown on their bookmark. Again, if they pass a quiz, the points from that book goes towards their target!
The children are loving the competition element and there has been a real sense of enjoyment in reading down in Year 3!
Please continue to support your children with reading at home and help their teachers by signing their yellow diary with the date, the title of the book and how well they have read!
