Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Island Life!

Year 3 have been enjoying a new story book for term 4 called  Oliver and the Seawigs. It is an adventure story about a boy who goes in search of his missing parents. He finds himself on a rambling isle with a short-sighted mermaid and a talking albatross for company!

   

We have been creating story maps of the exciting events.

   

We also drafted, edited and published diary entries written in role as Oliver and remembered to include features, such as writing in the first person and past tense, using time connectives and describing feelings.

  

We continued our island theme this week in our topic lesson. We explored the differences between small and large scale maps and looked at Ordnance Survey symbols. Finally, we  created a map of our own imaginary island with a useful key.

  

We have enjoyed our first two weeks of Term 4 and we are looking forward to returning to school and continuing our island adventures.
