Year 3 Literacy

Year three are writing a narrative based on the book 'Flood' by Alvaro Villa where a family has to evacuate their home amidst a raging storm.

To enable them to write with empathy and emotive language and immerse them into the story, they had an experience day in which they watched news reports of flood evacuations and studied pictures where people had to pack up their possessions in a hurry.

They really enjoyed performing role plays using props and suitcases to imagine what it would be like to have to choose only a few treasured and necessary items and leave their homes. The children used emotive vocabulary to show how the characters would be feeling and fully engaged with the day.

They finished by drawing and labelling their chosen items in a suitcase and explaining why they had chosen them. Well done year three!
