Hello Hansby! 😊 


9am: Get active! 
Every day in school this week, we will be joining Joe Wicks to wake ourselves up with a fun 30 minute P.E lesson live from his YouTube account.  Click and follow this link to start your day off the right way!


Week commencing 23rd March 2020


Write a discussion piece of writing in answer the question Should Robin Hood have stolen from the rich? 
Remember, a discussion piece of writing weighs us both sides of an argument equally.  
You should begin to plan this discussion through researching both sides of the argument and thinking about how Robin stealing from the rich was a good thing, and how it might have not been such a good thing, and the impact it had.


Success criteria:

  • Introductory paragraph to introduce the argument
  • Equally balanced argument
  • Detailed reasons to back up argument
  • Conjunctions
  • Paragraphs
  • Interesting sentence starters


Looking forward to reading your discussion pieces! Having practised our typing skills in computing, please type up your discussion and send by Friday 3rd April 2020 to the email:

This term, Year 3 have spent their Art lessons focusing on the incredible artwork created by the famous Jackson Pollock.  We worked hard to learn the skills and techniques to create Pollock’s artwork, before practising them ourselves.  Together, Year 3 all participated in creating this fantastic replica of Pollock’s work - what talented children I have in my class!
