| Year 3
Year 3 have started this term with their new Talk4Writing topic about instructions.
BREAKING NEWS! Stone Giant running free! The Year 3 children received a newspaper report that there was a Stone Giant on the loose in the local area and the police needed their help to trap it.
As classes, the children decided that the police needed a set of instructions for how to capture the terrible creature as quickly as possible. The children decided that the police needed instructions because it would allow them to follow clear, numbered steps and they would have a list of what they needed to successfully trap the Stone Giant.
To begin with, the children worked in small groups to act out the instructions - one Stone Giant and two police detectives. This allowed them to become familiar with them before learning them using a story map and actions.
