Welcome to Anthony Browne class!

So far this year we have spent a term looking at our topic, Predators. We have looked at the body, predators in the wild and the BFG. We enjoyed building up to our quiz afternoon where the parents came in to challenge our knowledge of predators.

This term we are looking at Scrumdiddilyumptious. We are reading Charlie and the chocolate factory in class and taking amazing ideas from it.

We have been writing persuasive adverts to sell our new chocolate invention as well as writing instructions for our peers to follow. We are looking forward to answering the question ‘what is the juiciest fruit?’ and making a vegetable orchestra!

We are learning lots about healthy eating as well as the importance of the government food labels. We will be putting all of this into practise on the 7th December when our parents come in to taste our healthy smoothies and see our amazing creations.

We can change our book as many times as we would like each week, but on the other days we do these independently.

We are given our homework books on a Wednesday and our online topic web and MyMaths are set.

In Year 3 we are expected to read at least 3 times a week to help us improve on our reading stamina and ability.

We are beginning our school year learning about the BFG and we will continue to have an allocated fantastic novel for each term.
