Year 3 had a special visitor who inspired them with their descriptive writing...
'I have seen a dragon. I have seen an inquisitive, brave dragon. It was wonderful! The dragon was scared. I looked at the dragon carefully. What could I see? It was as brave as a tiger. It had shiny silver claws. It had shiny, sparkly, red eyes.'

'I have seen a dragon. I have seen a clever, molten red dragon. It was outstanding. The dragon was hurt. I looked at the dragon carefully. What could I see? It has scales as sharp as a knife and feathers as soft as a duvet. He was the best.'

'I have seen a dragon. I have seen a small dragon. It was creepy. It was very fast. The dragon was feathery. It was small but fast. He is amazing. I looked at him carefully.'

'I have seen a dragon. I have seen a bright, shy dragon. It was awesome. The dragon was speedy. I looked at the dragon carefully. What could I see? It had a thin body like a head. It had yellow eyes like car lights. It was feathery, sneaky and clever. It had a wagging tail like a dog.'

JJ the bear has already had many adventures with the children of Year 3. So far, he has been out for lots of dinners, been playing lots of football and even had a pony ride! He loves brushing his teeth, getting into his pjs and having a good night's sleep.
To get Year 3 off to a SUPER START, we visited Kinver Edge in Staffordshire. There, we were able to light fires, make clay pots and build hurdle fences. We also visited the Rock Houses and saw what it might be like to live in a cave. We learnt all about survival in the Stone Age and are eager to learn more.
