Welcome to 3HS' English Page!
Last week we based our learning on 'Dear Teacher' by Amy Husband. We looked at the features of formal and informal letters. We will continue to look at letters this week, and how we can use persuasive language to convince the reader of our point of view.
Take a look at Will's letter, explaining why he will not be here for the beginning of term....
Dear Miss Fulford,
I am writing to inform you that I may be late for my first day back due to unwanted attention from the secret services. Surprisingly, they requested my assistance to find a young, adventurous explorer. Even though I told him about the maths test, he explained that the future of the country depends on me.
Oscar created his own fiery brew...
Double, double, toil and trouble
Fire burn cauldron bubble;
Sting of poor bee
Foot of monstrous frog , old woman teeth
Blood of scary adder, small brain of a dog
Old poisonous sweets like hell-broth;
Blind bats wing, blade of grass
Baby werewolf fur
Double , double, toil and trouble
Fire burn; cauldron bubble
Spellings to learn during WB 26th June. This week we will be revising Year 3 spelling patterns
Last term we took The Twits by Roald Dahl and changed it into a play script. The children amazed us with the fantastic vocabulary they used for their introductions!
Mr and Mrs twit are the ugliest family ever to have walked on earth. There is nothing happy or nice to say about them...ever. When happy, smiley children similar to us run past them, they dash in horror because they are so terrible and frightening. This terrific play is going to tell you the story of how they are so mean and horrible to each other and how they eventually reach an explosive end.
Mr and Mrs Twit are the most terrifying people in the whole wide world. There is nothing positive to say about them...ever. When young, innocent children run past them with fear, they almost pass out because they are so ugly. This extraordinary play is going to tell you the story of how they reach a terrible end.
Mr and Mrs Twit are the most evil people to be invented. There is never anything good to say about them in the entire universe. When tiny, winy, innocent children walk happily past them, they run, terrified to death, because they are so horrifyingly disgusting. This exciting play is going to tell you the story of how they trick and mistreat each other and how they eventually reach a horrible end.

We have been exploring the poem 'The reader of this poem' by Roger McGough
We created some verses of our own.
The reader of this poem is...
As fast as a flash
As bonkers as a clown
As lazy as a slug
As crazy as a clown
As stunning as a star
As noisy as some feet
This might be a bit crazy
But it's just a joke!
Written by Will
The reader of this poem is...
As pretty as a shining yellow flower
As bright as colourful fireworks
As fun as chasing waves
As adventurous as an African explorer
As kind as a blue whale guiding other fish
Written by Madelyne. The reader of her poem was Kiera!
As beautiful as a cool princess
As playful as a crazy clown
As funny as a jack-in -the- box
As calm as old people
As kind as God
As jolly as a lolly
As patient as a biscuit tin
As proud as a teacher
As smart as a student

Take a look at Harry's fable:
The Platypus and the Dragon
In hot Southern Australia a platypus was taking a snooze in a sparkling river. Just after midnight, the platypus woke up. As soon as he got out of the river a dragon grabbed the little, green platypus. The dragon grabbed him in his horrible, terrifying, blue, filthy claws.
"P-ppp-please l-l-et m-me go. Because if you do I-I will help you if you are ever in danger."
" You. And how would you help me?" laughed the dragon. But he insisted so he agreed and the platypus walked away, shaking like a bag of bones.
The next day the platypus was sitting in the lush, green forest with a bright, blue river. Suddenly a hunter was hunting for dragon meat. "Oh no!" yelled the platypus. "I have to save him!" and he used his orange bill to peck the man's legs and he ran away and never was seen again.
Moral: Small friends prove to be good friends.
