During World Faiths week, Class 3 learnt all about Hinduism. As a class, we focussed on three of the ‘Fruits of Friendship with God’: Patience, goodness and kindness. Whilst discussing symbolism, we found out that the lotus flower is a symbol that represents how people should always be kind and good. In addition to this, the ‘Aum’ symbol represents Brahman and the universe. Together, we created a piece of artwork based on these two symbols. By putting the two symbols together we are sending a message to everyone to be kind and good to the whole universe!
Well done Class 3, amazing artwork!

Wow, what a fun and active week Class 3!

In English, Class 3 have been learning about the epic poem, Beowulf. Using the story of Beowulf as inspiration, we have started to create our own poem as a class. Each group has been responsible for one verse, as well as for ensuring that they include poetic devices such as onomatopoeia, rhyming and metaphors.
All of the groups have worked together well and have contributed to the amazing poem that they are currently creating. Well done Class 3!
Watch this space for our finished poem.

This week, Class 3 have been writing character descriptions. We have focused on using interesting and ambitious vocabulary. Here are some extracts, can you spot any pieces of vocabulary that you can use in your work?
Gabriel- ‘There is an Anglo-Saxon named Sam. He is eighteen and lives in one of seven kingdoms, Wessex. He has bushy eyebrows;teeth the size of icebergs; ragged hair and a compact triangular nose. Sometimes he wears red jewellery, roaring red like a fire. Sam is a valiant Anglo-Saxon boy who always has cunning plans when it comes to perilous fights.’
Zachary-‘…With his deep blue eyes, he searched the landscape for survivors. His long droopy ears could hear every step his enemy took.’
Lola- ‘ Heidi jumped out of bed and opened her deep, blue eyes. Quickly, she got dressed into her chequered green dress…Her face was white like her horse.’

Last week, Class 3 designed their own Anglo-Saxon jewellery. Using the example below, Class 3 looked at the patterns, shapes and colours used in order to design their pendant. All of Class 3 thought carefully about what to include and tried really hard to make their designs symmetrical. As a result, their designs are amazing!
