Mrs Twycross set the class the challenge of using iPads to create exciting content about Dragons. The pupils could choose to create reports, retell the the story of 'How to train your dragon' or do something else of their choice. They were split into 4 groups and this is what they came up with.... (It's all awesome!)

The first 3 videos are made on an app called 'Tellagami' and were made by Koen, Matteo and Luke.

Descriptive Writing

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.'

Written by Anna


'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.'

Written by Koen


'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.'

Written by Caisey


'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.'

Written by Cian

The Autumn Term - The Stone Age ROCKS!

Still image for this video

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. 

We enjoy programming our 'robots'...

We enjoyed going to the cinema in 'Film Week'.

After watching Never Ending Story we are now writing our own quest story. We began by using our imagination in P.E.
