Mrs Fisher will be working with groups of Year 3 children throughout each morning for Reading, Writing and Maths.
We have been exploring the Greek myth “Theseus and the Minotaur” in our lessons. We will be writing our own version of the story with our own mythical beast.
We are exploring the shape of a non fiction text that we will be learning about over the next few weeks. We will be writing our own Holiday Brochure about Skara Brae. We found the shapes in the text and put them on the non fiction map.
We role played many of the jobs that people would have carried out on Skara Brae such as farmers, hunters, food gatherers, wood chopping and fishermen.
We will be using this book to help us with our fact finding to write our own holiday brochure.
