Pelicans - Year 3

Mr Nicholas


When I was about 6 years old, I watched my older sister perform at the Plymouth Speech and Drama Festival. One of the boys in her class read a monologue from Our Day Out by Willy Russell, where he was a bit rude about his teacher. I can remember all the adults watching laugh and wondered how this boy was not only getting away with what he was saying but getting the adults to laugh along as well! Up until this point, I was quite shy but then I started lessons and the next year was on the stage myself doing that same monologue at the festival and basking in the glory of laughs. It was then, through discovering play writes like Willy Russell and poets like Spike Milligan, I found a love of performing and discovered a new-found confidence off the stage as well.

I really enjoy reading the Alfie books by Shirley Hughes. Alfie Gets In First was read to me as a child and I have since read it with my children. I also LOVE the illustrations.

One of my favourite stories to read is Zog by Julian Donaldson. This book brings back lovely memories of reading the story to my two sons. The book also reminds us that you can achieve anything with patience, perseverance and someone who believes in your abilities.

It is great to see all the children back after the summer break. We have lots planned this half term. As always  we will enjoy getting to know our new class over the first few days. In Maths the first topic is Number and Place Value where we will look at different sized numbers and rounding. In English we will be looking at and performing some poetry.
Our topic this term is the Stone Age through to the Iron Age and during the first few days we will practice some Stone Age drawing. In Geography we will learn about maps and compasses and in Science we'll look at how we can classify living things.
We'll keep you updated with everything via Dojo as always and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Many thanks
