We are carrying on with our dragon work this week and are now starting to think about the hero of the story - 'The Knight'. There are two activities to do on this below.

1) Draw your own knight and create a word bank full of adjectives (WOW words) about him, then write a description of him using some of the words from your word bank.  Remember you can tell us what he looks like, what sounds you can hear, what sort of person he is and how he moves.

2) Create a Wanted Poster trying to recruit a suitable knight who can 'defeat the deadly dragon'. There is an example one below and also a blank template if you want to use it. Don't forget to add your own picture from the Knight that you designed.

Great Reads

While you have been at home we hope you have had the chance to read some great books. This week we would like you to recommend books that you think the other children in Year 3 would enjoy. Write the name of the book, the author and a few lines about why you enjoyed it being careful not to give the story away. The books you recommend can be both fiction and non-fiction.

Mrs Kendall has written one below to help give you some ideas of how to do it.

I would like to recommend “The Bolds on Holiday” by Julian Clary. My daughter Evie who is also in year 3 really enjoyed this book it made her laugh out loud. At the end of the story there are pages full of the jokes you find in the book such as:

“Why do seagulls fly over the sea?”

“because if they flew over the bay they’d be bagels!”

 and...

“Why did the lobster blush?”

“because the sea weed!”

Ask your adult to email us your suggestions and we will pop them on the website.
