Share a story!
Friday 6th March | No comments yet
We have been sharing lots of stories this week to celebrate World Book Day. The aim of this year’s ‘share a million stories’ campaign is to make story-sharing a habit of a lifetime and create readers for life. In year 3, we love listening to stories that take us on a new adventure and allow our minds to visit places we have never before travelled to. This week, the children have inferred character thoughts and feelings by hot seating different characters and completing a role on the wall activity after listening to the story ‘Voices in the Park’ by Anthony Brown. We have travelled to the enchanting place where magic lives in Angela McAllister’s tale ‘Leon and the Place Between’. We have collected ambitious vocabulary, discussed author choice, asked questions about plot and made predictions. 3E have had lots of fun reading ‘Krindlekrax’ by Philip Ridley and have created some excellent comic strips based on the different characters. We have also enjoyed reading and sharing stories with our reading buddies in Nursery this week! Reading for pleasure is beneficial for all children and adults alike, therefore we would appreciate your help in sharing engaging stories with your child at home.
A huge thank you and well done to all of the children who have sent in their shelfies and book reviews. Share a story reading star sheets (found on the back of the original WBD letter) must be handed in on Monday for our prize draw.
We had a fantastic day out at Leeds City Museum yesterday to conclude out topic on Ancient Egyptians. We explored the ancient worlds gallery looking at historical artefacts and reading interesting facts. We particularly enjoyed looking at the mummified body of Nessyamun and finding out all about him. The children were enthusiastic and were so sensible and well-behaved throughout the day. What an asset to Farfield!
This week’s homework is a recap of our learning on comparing lengths. This, alongside the learning log, is due on Wednesday 11th March.
Have a lovely weekend,
