Poetry Challenge - This is a seascape which hangs at the top of my stairs. I love it because it is a painting of one of my FAVOURITE PLACES to go . I wonder how many of you can guess where it is? I would love you to write me a poem about this painting. It could be an acrostic poem (which spells a word or phrase, vertically down the page), it could be a descriptive poem, using similes ( eg as swift as an eagle) and alliteration (eg the shells settle on the shingles of the shore) or, for those who want to make it rhyme, it could be a poem using rhyming couplets (where 2 lines of your poem rhyme).
Have a go ! Send me your wonderful, seascape poems to -
firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 19th April and I will announce our poets of the week ! Don't forget to guess where it is
As more exciting resources are made available for free, I will keep updating our class page.
The link below has some Fab, Fun Football activities - see the Football Fun Activity Pack, along with a super Poetry Challenge for you budding poets.

Victorian School Days at
Christ Church C of E
A local history unit, based on the history of our school, along with the geography of our school and the surrounding area.
On Wednesday 26th June, Year 3 went back in time to the age of the Victorians. Our classroom became a Victorian school room where children sat in rows of boys and girls, worked on skates using chalk and participated in a Victorian drill on the playground. The three Rs were taught of Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.
We had a magical experience this week of transporting to the world of Harry Potter and playing Quidditch! Year 3 were split into the four house teams: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw to play against each other (on broomsticks!) as Keepers, Seekers, Beaters and Chasers! Lots of amazing props were used such as multi coloured wigs and headbands! A fantastic fun filled opportunity for the class!
The Dogs Trust charity visited Christ Church so we could learn about handling dogs and how the charity look after homeless dogs.
They look after 15,000 dogs every year!
