Please see below the recommended reading list for year 3. If your child would like to borrow a particular book from the library, please kindly send a note to Miss Rahimi.
~ English - Drama ~
We have been reading the book, “Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp”, by Philip Pullman. In our English lesson, we worked in groups and acted out the scene where Aladdin was trapped in the cave. By acting out the scene, we were able to understand how Aladdin may have been feeling, which in turn helped us be creative with our writing.
Aladdin could see sneaky scavenging bats all around the cave. -Tiwa
When Aladdin was stuck in the cave he saw rough bumpy stone walls as black as a panther’s fur. - Jamie
~ St. Matthew's Feast Day ~
On Wednesday 21st September we celebrated St. Matthew’s feast day. Our teacher had planned various exciting tasks for us to complete. We started with a fun treasure hunt activity and found lots of interesting facts about St. Matthew. Then, we worked in pairs to research about St. Matthew’s life and designed an informative magazine article. Towards the end the day, we thoroughly enjoyed recreating art work on St. Matthew. Most importantly, we learnt the value of our class name after listening to the story of St. Matthew. This taught us the importance of giving people a second chance, just like Jesus did.
~ Science - Observing and Classifying Rocks ~
In science, we have been learning about different types of rocks. We have observed and classified different pieces of unknown rocks by describing their physical characteristics. We learnt there are many different rocks, but they all fall into one of three categories: sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous.
