We knew exactly what we wanted to learn when we came back after Half Term. When we were at the Farm we went over a ricketty rackety bridge and some of us thought it might be the sort of bridge that had a Troll living under it. We certainly saw quite a few Billy Goats while we were there too. So we got straight to work learning to retell the story of The Three Billy Goat's Gruff. We enjoyed using instruments to follow the story plan and play a soundtrack for the story too.
We worked in teams to design and make a new bridge for the Goats to trip trap over.
Then we got a note from The Troll saying how sorry he was and that he was only a bit mean and grumpy because he was a bit lonely and wanted to make friends with the goats. So we wrote him a reply and he came to visit. We have been helping him to learn good manners at snacktime and how to be a good friend with our class values ever since.

We have begun our new topic of Chocolate with gusto in Year 3. We are learning the history of chocolate and about its origins.
The children are enjoying discovering characters in our story, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and imagining their own inventions to be considered by Willy Wonka!
