ENGLISH - THE CREAKERS

In Year 3 this half term we have been reading 'The Creakers' by Tom Fletcher.  We have loved our book and we are currently producing some brilliant work.  We have been writing about what we would do if we woke up to find our parents missing! Writing in the form of a diary we were able to think about our thoughts and feelings and what the world might be like to be free from adults! We then had a class debate 'Should the parents of Whiffington come back?'.  There were some great arguments but overall we felt that the parents should return!  So impressed with how many children have purchased the book, bringing it in to read along! We are very excited to find out what happens next! 

 

 

 SCIENCE

We are currently studying rocks.  We really enjoyed this lesson where we were able to look at the characteristics of different rocks and group them.

P.E  

We have been learning about Lobster Ball in P.E during this first half term with Mr Green.  We have to work together as a team trying to force our opposition to make mistakes.  We even had officiating and coaching from each other! We really enjoyed it.
