Welcome to Class 3. We are a mixed Year 3/4 class.
Our aim is to help the children to acclimatise to a change in expectations from KS1 and to become more independent, pro-active learners. We believe learning in an inspiring, fun way helps the children to engage in their learning and develop positive learning behaviours.
Anglo Saxon Book Day
On Wednesday, Class 3 enjoyed a fantastic day of book making day with Emma Molony. The day was based around 'The Exeter Book' - an Anglo-Saxon book that is displayed in Exeter Cathedral and contains an unsolved riddle - 'Riddle 57'. The children explored writing and drawing with quills and ink on parchment in response to the riddle. They wrote their own riddles and used a printing press to produce colourful representations of Riddle 57. They listened to extracts of text read in the Anglo-Saxon dialect and explored possible solutions for the riddle. By the end of the day, the children had all created their own book which contained all of their completed pieces of work from the workshop. It was a lovely way to bring the term to an end and a huge thank you to Emma for giving us the opportunity to learn some new skills.
