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.
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.
Earlier in the week, the Bluebirds in year 3 designed and made canopic jars in clay. This morning, the Bluebirds painted them. We used metallic paint as canopic jars were usually decorated in rich, opulent colours.
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.
In year 3, the Bluebirds wrote about their special person, telling them why they are special and what specifically makes that person special to that particular Bluebird. This is a part of our ‘Here We Are’ project and they will go on our display in the classroom.
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.
