Y3 Tribes, Totem poles and teamwork

Home » News » Y3 Tribes, Totem poles and teamwork

Welcome back everyone.

Our final term in year 3 has got off to a very busy start!

Our new class novel, The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks, certainly has us gripped! When Omri, the main character, receives a cupboard for his birthday, places a plastic Native American Indian brave inside, and locks the door with his Grandma's ornate key, he is more than a little surprised to hear much scuffling inside. When he opens the door, he discovers his plastic toy has come to life. A tiny and very bossy Indian stands before his eyes, and the adventure begins...

We began the week with our big art project; designing, drawing and painting totem pole faces in groups, which combined to make a giant Totem pole for display in class.

In English, we've written adverts to 'sell' magic cupboards, and worked hard to draw the reader in and make our product sound too good to ignore! We've added sentences which include one or even two clauses and presented our adverts in our very neatest handwriting. I wonder if more pen licences might be awarded next week?

In maths, we have continued work on addition and subtraction. Next week, we will move on to measurement, and will also revisit multiplication and division. Our work on times tables will be useful then.

In the afternoons, we've started to learn more about Native American Indians. We've all chosen a tribe to be part of and completed group research. Next week, we will share our findings so that we learn lots about each of the 5 main tribes and begin to answer some of the questions which we decided we needed answers to on day one. We already know about the landscape where each tribe lives as we used common sense when looking at their locations in North America.

We are all excited to learn more and really can't wait to hear how Omri and Little Bull's relationship develops. I have a feeling there may be mischief ahead....

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
