Well done to all of the Polar Bears for your hard work today. You have been busy completing maths, English and Art. Here are a few subtractions, story maps and Stone Age drawings/paintings...
Year 3 have enjoyed some time in our Woodland School. We have been learning about manmade and natural materials and enjoyed a treasure hunt after someone had stolen all of Mrs Burgess' manmade objects. We found them all, but the green pipe cleaner was very well camouflaged. 'Harry Saves the Ocean' was a great book which taught us all about keeping our natural environment tidy.
We have also read 'Leaf Man' and felt inspired to create our own leaf people from the autumn leaves that have started to fall.
We read 'Stanley's Stick' and enjoyed learning all about Stanley and his imagination. We created our own stick models, including people, vehicles and even a saxophone, from the sticks we found.
This half term in puffin class, we have been learning about the bible, what it is, how we can find stories in it and looking at the first story about the creation of the world. We have discussed what this story means to Christians and what it tells us about what Christians must believe about God.
Here are a few lovely examples of some of the written activities we’ve completed.
RE Creation work examples
Puffins class have been enjoying their forest schools sessions so much, they asked to share some of their creations with you at home. They were asked to make an animal or person from objects they could find in and around the forest school area. They look very effective! Can you find your creation??

Chen has written a super 'Lost and Found' story!
Lost and Found Once there was a small boy called Joseph. Joseph was 8 years old, and he had a brother and 2 sisters.He is the oldest one in the family and he’s always there for them.One day he found a ﬂying squirrel in his treehouse, he didn’t know where it had come from.The ﬂying squirrel looked so doleful that Joseph thought it was lost. Joseph decided to help. First he checked with his neighbours but nobody kept ﬂying squirrels. Next he checked with his friends but they didn't keep ﬂying squirrels either. Joseph didn’t know where to go next. Finally, he went to the library and discovered that ﬂying squirrels come from Canada! Joseph didn’t waste a single second to pack everything they would need and buy 2 tickets for the ferry. On the trip Joseph and the ﬂying squirrel played games, read books and watched the sunset. Finally, they reached Canada! After they got out of the ferry Joseph gave some supplies to the ﬂying squirrel and a plant for a gift. After shaking it’s hand Joseph went to buy another ticket for the ferry home.The ﬂying squirrel looked downcast. On the way home Joseph felt lonely. There was no point of playing games because there was nobody to play with. There was point of reading books because there was nobody to read to and there was no point of watching the sunset because he arrived home early . Joseph walked home unhappily but when he nearly reached home something caught his eye, there was something on the door step. It was the ﬂying squirrel! It was not lost, it just didn’t have a place to live! The ﬂying squirrel moved into the treehouse. The ﬂying squirrel and Joseph became best friends forever, and it was never lonely again!

'The Lost Monkey' by Shalome
Can you see how Shalome has shown that the monkey is angry?
The Lost Monkey
Once upon a time there was a girl called Isabelle. One day she was coming home from school and she saw a monkey ““wow” said Isabelle. When the monkey saw her it started to follow Isabelle everywhere. The monkey looked sad and lost so she decided to help it.
First she checked the local police station but no one had reported a missing monkey. She was about to see where a monkey came from when something caught her eye it was a poster, it said lost monkey from the local zoo. If you have seen please take it back.
She walked while telling stories / throwing crumbs and playing game’s .They reached the zoo it was hard to say goodbye. After five minutes Isabelle left the zoo and was walking home angrily while kicking rock’s. When she got home she saw something at her door...it was the monkey. She figured it wasn’t lost it was just lonely, now it lives in the spare bedroom.
