Year 3 - Jade



Journey to the Jungle.


Jade class have been learning how to write an explorers log whilst using adverbials, conjunctions and powerful adjectives. We created make our own jungles to let our imaginations run wild at the possibilities of what we may find on our journey. 





This term Jade class have been looking at the art of Ted Harrison. Ted Harrison was inspired by the landscapes of Canada and his choice of bright colours were inspired by the northern lights. 

Reindeer visit



The reindeer came to visit school at the end of term. Storm and Blizzard are both ten years old and are from Norway. We learned lots of new information about how reindeer live, move and eat. There was a lot of new information that we hadn't heard before. We all enjoyed their visit, including the class bear Walter Fudge.


On Monday 16th November we were lucky enough to have a theatre show live in our school hall. Some of the action was on a big screen and there was a narrator who jumped in and out of the story! There were lots of songs to clap along to and we especially enjoyed all the funny jokes in the show. It was brilliant!
