Year 3 at Central Park

Both Sequoia and Hazel class were impeccably behaved on our trip to the park earlier this week. It was a speedy trip during their Literacy time which served to inspire to write about the body's senses. As previously mentioned, the purpose of the trip was to gather some language for a descriptive piece of writing about a forest tied in with Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. The children were encouraged to use their senses to notice what they could see, hear and touch.

Mitchell noticed that there was far more than just leaves on the floor.. Sticks, dirt, mud, and even some creepy crawlies!

 Jersey found a crinkly, crunchy leaf that crackled gently in her hand!

Many thanks to Miss Metters and Ms Jarvis for joining us on the trip. Now let's get writing!
