Carlton Book Fair

On Friday 12th October the 'Book People' book fair arrived at Carlton School.  All the children got the chance to go down with their classes to browse the many books and kits available for sale.  They really enjoyed having a look and were excited to come back with their parents after school.

The book fair will be running after school in the hall this Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th October - please come and build on your child's interest of reading by purchasing one (or more) of the many titles available at a discounted price, by doing this not only will you help your child but the school too as for every book purchased the school receives funding to purchase books for the school which just goes back to supporting your child's learning.  

Thank you in advance.







In literacy, this term, Year 3 have been looking at Legends.  We have looked at stories such as 'The Dragon Slayer', 'The Beast with a Thousand Teeth' and 'St. George and the Dragon'.  The children looked at the different features of Legends then they got to create their own legendary hero and mythical creature.  They worked hard and wrote their own legend stories, They all wrote fantastic stories. Ask your child to retell their story to you.

This week they went back to the original legends we looked at and they  got the chance to act them out in groups and then self-assess how well they did.  The children had lots of fun. 



Guided Reading 

In guided reading we are reading the book, Storm by Kevin Crossley-Holland. 

 Please support your child to read at home, and remind them to bring their reading journals every day.



In art we have been using a range of materials to create our self-portraits. We have used, pencils, felt tip pens, and pastels to make our artwork exciting.




In RE we are exploring the question ‘How are beliefs expressed through art?’.

We worked very hard to create our own symbols that represent world religions.
