Willow 2017-2018

Welcome to Willow Class with
 
Miss Fisher and
Mrs Parker 
 
 
Take a look at what we have been up to in Year 3 so far...
This half term we are reading the Michael Morpurgo book, Toro! Toro! Today we had a visit from Uncle Juan, the hero matador of Spain. We talked about whether we think bull fighting is a good or bad thing. After lots of discussion and interviewing Uncle Juan, we were able to persuade him that bull fighting is cruel and that he could dance with the bulls in the Corrida without hurting them.
We learnt about the Roman Empire.  In English we read Romans on the Rampage by Jeremy Strong.We have immersed ourselves in the life of Croakbag, and his Roman family. We had chariot races, visitors who told us about being a Roman slave, and even held an anti-slavery protest. 
We went to the library and had a great time learning about different types of books and how to order them alphabetically. We also went to Mersey Road, to sketch observational drawings of the new bridge. Take a look at our fantastic art.
