Year 3

Term 1 will continue to focus on Covid catch up, embedding the basic skills in reading, writing and maths to ensure the foundations of learning are rebuilt for the future.

In English, Year 3 will be studying the book ' The TIn Forest' by Helen Ward: It tells the story of an old man who dreams of living in a wild forest bursting with life, but lives in a grey and barren scrap-metal wasteland. From a moment of inspiration and under the care of the old man, a forest made of tin emerges, and from this springs life and beauty.

 

They will then explore the book 'The Tunnel': The Tunnel by Anthony Browne explores themes of anxiety, cooperation, curiosity, responsibility and being a risk-taker. ... In every way they were different.” The siblings, who continually argue, discover a mysterious tunnel. Excited, the brother immediately goes through, dismissing his sister's fears
