Cherry Class Year 3


During the Summer Term, Cherry Class will be stepping aboard and sailing into the world of pirates! To spark engagement in the classroom, we will be using our new 'Curiosity Corner' to reveal pirate-themed objects each week and ask curious questions about them, to discover and build upon our knowledge. Throughout this term, we will sketch pirate ships in Art, create our own pirate inspired scratch game in Computing, use map work to locate the Mediterranean in Geography and write and compose our own sea shanties in English and Music!

In the Autumn term, we visited another key period of history - the medieval times. We learnt all about castles and their importance, as well as comparing today to Anglo-Saxon times. Within the term, we created our very own Medieval class assembly to showcase all of the brilliant learning that had taken place in the Autumn term.

To support our theme, we will be reading 'The Legend of Captain Crow's Teeth' by Eoin Colfer. The narrative features Will and his brothers, who are on holiday along the Irish coast when his brother Marty tells the spooky tale of Captain Crow -  a ruthless Irish pirate who once attacked the wrong ship! We will be unpicking this text in our reading sessions, where we will complete written tasks using our VIPERS skills.


Later in the term, we will also be reading another exciting, pirate-themed book! Our next book is 'Pirate Diary: The Journal of Jake Carpenter'. This book explores the account of a feisty nine-year old's adventure on the high seas in 1716.
