Year 3 Learning Challenge Autumn 1

How well do you know your local area?

Below is the significant person, painting, piece of music and poem which are related to this half term's theme - How well do you know your local area?

It would be brilliant to see as many completed projects as possible in Year 3!

'If I Were to Own' (Abridged) by Edward Thomas

If I were to own this countryside
As far as a man in a day could ride,
And the Tyes were mine for giving or letting,--
Wingle Tye and Margaretting
Skreens, Gooshays, and Cockerells,
Shellow, Rochetts, Bandish, and Pickerells,

Fields where plough-horses steam and plovers
Fling and whimper, hedges that lovers
Love, and orchards, shrubberies, walls
Where the sun untroubled by north wind falls,

For a song, a blackbird's song, at dawn.
He should have no more, till on my lawn
Never a one was left, because I
Had shot them to put them into a pie,--
His Essex blackbirds, every one,
And I was left old and alone.
