A fantastic exhibit of all 3 Cypress' effort into their wonderful home learning. We learned so much about the Romans and improved our speaking & listening skills!

3 Cypress are very excited to have started reading The Pebble in my Pocket.

We created these colourful volcano pictures after listening to the descriptive

Imaginative and creative minds in Year 3

In our first few English lessons this term, the children were learning how to start writing creatively using one page from the book ‘I’ll Take You to Mrs Cole’ by Michael Foreman. The picture portrays a beast-infested dungeon filled with six scared, imprisoned children, with an intimidating or brave figure stood at the top of the steep, windy stairs.

Working in pairs at first, the children were asked to think, share and then write down their ideas for what the figure could: a) smell; b) see; c) taste; d) hear and finally, e) touch/feel. Then, as a whole class, each pair told the rest of the class their sentences. With a little bit of help and encouragement to think of more interesting adjectives, the children came up with the following work:


Smell:

The disgusting aroma of the ancient nappy worn by the terrified baby.


See:

An upside down, hairy spider dangling, waiting hungrily.

A small baby, sobbing loudly.


Taste:

The stale, unpleasant air in her hungry mouth.


Hear:

The clanking metal chains falling onto the stone slabs

Dripping goo splashing into the sewage water.

The hideous crocodile snapping extremely loudly, so much so it made the walls shake.


Feel:

The scaly snake coiling around her nervous body.

The dark green slimy gunge on the crumbly stone walls.


 

Well done, Year 3!
