Autumn 1 - Year 3 English


This half term, year 3 have been very busy setting in. We started English by looking at the text 'Where the wild things are' by the author Maurice Sendak. The children have been writing character descriptions, creating their own wild things and describing the setting of Where the wild things are.

  The Tear Thief  



We have just started our new text 'The Tear Thief' by Carol Ann Duffy. We have started the text by reading it together and a whole class discussion. This week we are describing the setting of the peaceful street where the story takes place. 










We have been thinking about writing our very own narrative based on The Tear Thief. We have some excellent ideas, including The Tooth Thief, The Blush Thief, The Smile Thief.. Check back for a few examples.
