Reading champions! ........ Again!


year 3 Have won the reading trophy yet again, well done to everyone for their fantastic reading! 

Our Ninja Certificate winners this week

Well done to all of our star badge winners this week! We had 2 white belts, 3 yellow belts, and an orange belt! Keep up all of this fantastic reading over Christmas and we will have a lot more certificates to give out when we get back to school!



We have begun to look at our new Whole Class Shared Reading book, Journey. We have thoroughly enjoyed reading this so far and cannot wait to find out what happens next! This book has been full of so much mystery and it has really got us wondering. As this is a picture book, we have had to use lots of inference to understand the full story.


Whilst reading this book we have looked to build on our imagery, using a range of adjectives within our writing to describe, in detail, what has been taking place!



Imagery Poems


this week we are looking again at poetry, we are using our knowledge of poetry from our Whole Class Shared Reading lessons to create our very own poems with lots of imagery. We have been using the image below as stimulus for our writing. Watch this space for our amazing work!




I'm so excited to get stuck into our new Whole Class Shared Reading book. This fantastic book is full of so many funny and engaging poems for us to explore in year 3!


Here are some of the fantastic poems we have been reading in both our English and Whole Class Shared Reading lessons. Not only have we been reading poems, but using these as a starting point to create our very own poems! We hope you enjoy reading some of our poems below!
