Year 3’s Poems

I will put in the box

the last smile of my grandma,

the pride that holds our family together

and all the travels that I have been on.



I will put in the box

memories of my grandpa,

the pride of lifting a team trophy,

friends and family from Spain.



I will put in the box

the squeak of a squirrel,

the day my sister was born

and when she chased me to ride on my back.



I will put in the box

the sparkle of hot sand in summer,

the shimmer of shadows

and a fluffy feather from a full pillow.



I will put in the box

the silk of my mum’s scarf hanging in my tiny hands,

giant me on top of my dad’s shoulders,

the first smile of my brother.



I will put in the box

the flicker of a fire dragon’s flame,

an ancient alien arriving in the Atlantic,

Liverpool holding the premier league cup.


Finally the sun came out

Finally the sun stayed out long enough for us to explore how the sun creates shadows.  Year 3 were challenged to make a variety of shadows tall, thin, big and small. They all worked really hard and came up with some amazing ideas. We pose the question:


What happens to our shadow when we face the sun?

Does our shadow when we turn away from the sun?

Diorama Drama

After experimenting with year 4’s dioramas to create stop frame animations we began to look at the geography of India and how we could incorporate it in to our own versions. Take a look at what we have created so far.
