Role on the wall – Jub

This afternoon in English, Bluebirds in year 3 were writing a role on the wall for Jub. Jub is the main character in our new class reader – The Lost Happy Ending.

We read a few more pages together and then thought of all the ways we could describe Jub, thinking about where she lives, what she is feeling, what she looks like and the job she does. We came up with some ideas together.

Then we wrote our own role on the wall for Jub.

Our new book ‘The Lost Happy Endings’

This morning in English, the Bluebirds in year 3 we started reading a new book – The Lost Happy Endings.

First, read a section of the book together, then we looked in the book to find adjectives.
Millie said damp
Daisy B said darkening
Eason said huge
Hollie said old
Imogen found the synonym for old and said ancient
George said tallest

Next, we looked for nouns.
Miss Hooks said Jub, the main character
Imogen said tree
Harvey said forest
Holly said branch
Raman said twigs
Maarya said fireworks

After that, we looked for verbs.
Andrew said carry and shake
Dora said fluttered
Maya said ironed, cooked and shopped
Harvey said sleep
Alexie said drifted
Naz said climbed

Miss Hooks wrote all the words down and put them on the window so that we can use them when we are writing.

Designing Canopic Jars

Last term, the Bluebirds in year 3 learned all about Ancient Egypt in Topic. This week in Art, we are remembering our Topic lessons in art.

We are designing canopic jars to then make our design out of clay. Canopic jars were used by ancient Egyptians to hold mummified remains. During the mummification process, all of a person’s major organs were removed and placed in canopic jars.

Here are some of our designs:

Writing poems about the sky

In Bluebirds, we have been reading the book ‘Here We Are’.

We have written stars that tell everybody where our special place is and why.

We have written poems about the sky using nouns, adjectives and alliteration.

We have also written a little card to explain what makes us different and unique, we all had something different to write.

Class Charter

This afternoon in English, we created a class charter in order to understand that everyone is different and unique.

Liam is different and unique because he wants to be different from other people.
Amelie is different and unique because she can speak Spanish.
William is different and unique because he can speak French and Spanish.
Daisy W is different and unique because she has a different eye colour.
Daisy B is different and unique because she has her own opinions.
Eason is different and unique because he likes art.
