We are looking forward to an exciting year. Keep checking this page for information.
On Tuesday 22nd October, we went to Stowe for a writing workshop based around Queen Victoria's visit to Stowe in 1845. We had a really good day and found out lots of information about the amazing preparations for this royal visit. We all took on the role of one of the guests invited to the house whilst Queen Victoria was there and we wrote character descriptions and drew what we might have looked like, making sure we were dressed in appropriate clothes for the time. We saw the menu for the grand dinner, although we didn't think we would want to eat some of the dishes! We read about the extravagant decorations and made pictures of the elegantly furnished bedroom in which Queen Victoria stayed.
Back at school, we wrote a recount of the day.
Year 3, your recounts were some of the best pieces of writing so far this year. They were fantastic! You should be very proud of yourselves for the excellent use of language, sentence construction and structure of your work. Lots of you used paragraphs to separate sections of the day and good time adverbials such as first, next, after that, finally. Well done!
Homework for the half term holiday if possible (I know some of you are going away, so this is just if you have the time) - we will be really getting into our work on Ancient Greece after the holiday, so see if you can find a few facts about this time in history. Write them in your homework book. You could try to find some pictures too.
