Year 3 - Emerald

Welcome to Emerald Class!

 

Welcome to Year 3 

 

Your teachers this year are Mrs S Vickers,

Mrs Gatehouse, Miss Robertson and Miss Parker.

 

We are an enthusiastic, lively and friendly class who enjoy learning about a range of topics throughout the year and visiting places in the local area. Please read the information below to find out what we will be learning this term!

 
This term our topic is
 
Heroes and Villains
 

Martin Luther King, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks or Amy Johnson who will you want to find out about? Maybe someone from your family or local community. There are many heroes and heroines, but who do you admire the most and why?

Learn through music about the infamous villains, Bonnie and Clyde and Cruella De Vil. Can you think of more?

Write a riddle, a comic strip and change a traditional tale, develop dialogue and character and a biographical article. Maybe you could write an autobiography as if you were a villain, hero or heroine in our next Big Write!

How does it feel to do good things and bad? Which feels best and why? Can you do a good deed for someone to make them feel special and warm inside?

Then let's work together to write a really good rap to remember history's greats. There are lots to include!

Maybe we can even have a dress up superhero day and all get on gold!! The challenge is on!!!
