A Christmas Carol
For more information about this performance, please see Year 4 for photos.
Welcome to Year 3.
To mark the end of our first topic ‘Footsteps Around the World’ we took part in an Aboriginal workshop. Our day started with an assembly where we listened to John playing the didgeridoo or the yidaki as it is otherwise known. We spent the morning designing and painting our own didgeridoos which look great and will soon be on display in the hall. In the afternoon, we learnt about many of the different animals found in Australia. We also learnt how to play the didgeridoo – which is very difficult! We had a great day and learnt a lot.
In English we have been looking at performance poems. We have read and performed many different poems and have written some of our own. One of our favourite poems was ‘Chocolate Cake’ by Michael Rosen. We have written our own versions of ‘Chocolate Cake’ about cupcakes, doughnuts, noodles and even pizza and have performed them in class.
