Year 3 Learning Challenge

Year 3 Learning Challenge for Autumn 1

Dear Parents and Carers,
We are delighted to provide you with the Year 3 Learning Challenge for this half of the Autumn Term.
This learning challenge gives the children the opportunity to look at their local area from a number of perspectives. These include those of a contemporary musician, a modern-day athlete and a 19th century artist and poet. It is entirely up to your child whether they select the poem, significant person, music or painting, or a combination of all 4. They can also select the activities that they want to attempt, though we would encourage them to be ambitious and to deepen their learning as much as possible.
Although the Learning Challenge is entirely optional, and is in addition to the daily expectation of 15 minutes’ reading, 15 minutes’ times tables rehearsal and 15 minutes’ spellings practice, we have found that a large proportion of children have voluntarily taken up the challenge and have gained a great deal from it. We would therefore greatly appreciate your encouragement to participate. The children will receive a special Learning Challenge certificate at the end of the half term on completion of a project that shows a significant level of effort and challenge undertaken.
Should you have any problems regarding this, or any other issue, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support, and look forward to working with you this academic year.


Yours sincerely,


Miss Taylor and Mr Nicol

Poem

Edward Thomas – If I Were to Own (Abridged)
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.
