Report Writing in Year 3

Recently, we received this letter from Mr Tim Ber of Rainforest Development Inc.  He must have heard about our amazing assembly on Rainforests a few weeks ago!
Letter

We therefore had to learn how to write a non-chronological report to send back to him.  We read lots of different reports, including Pie Corbett’s excellent one on the Manchester Ridgeback, a variety of dragon, and thought about the sort of language we would need to use, as well as how to organise our writing.

We hope you enjoy reading these examples written by some of our Year Threes. (Click on the photo to enlarge.)

Rainforest Tribal Masks

As part of our rainforest topic, we will be making papier maché masks inspired by traditional tribal face painting.  Here are some of our designs.  I think they’re going to be brilliant!

If the mask moulds arrive in time for next Tuesday afternoon’s Art lesson,  I would love some parent helpers who don’t mind getting a bit messy with papier maché!
