French 16.9.22

In Year 3 we are starting MFL (modern foreign languages) for the first time. Our first lesson was learning about vowels in French and how to pronounce them correctly. It was quite tricky, but everyone tried really hard and had lots of fun singing songs and playing games to help us.

Guided Reading 12.9.22

As a hook to introduce our new novel. The children were given a jigsaw to complete with absolutely no instructions. They had to use teamwork to complete it and then made predictions, inferences and asked questions about the book based on what they could see on the front cover. It was a real challenge, but everyone enjoyed the task and are all now excited about reading our new book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.

Art - Self portraits  5.9.22

This week we have been learning how to make our self portraits more realistic by looking carefully at our features in the mirror. We had to look at what features we have on our faces and looked carefully at the shape of them. Each day we focussed on a different part of our face and had lots of practise to perfect our features.

                                                                                Watch out for the before and after portraits. We think you will be impressed!
