An Ancient Mayan Mystery

In Martin class 3, we have been busy researching information on the Mayans. Discovering the way they lived in their everyday lives,  what games they played, who they worshiped, even the food they typically ate.

Inspired through their discoveries of the Ancient Mayan civilisation, the children have gone on to write stories, which lie deep within the Kukulkan pyramid. They’re excited to unveil the secrets they discover and I hope you are too reading them.

A particular focus on their story writing was to include fronted adverbials and extend their higher level vocabulary.

Enjoy and let us know what you think!

Mr. C

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – Class 3 Walcott


In class 3 we have been reading Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. We have been practising our persuasive writing skills.  We have had lots of fun applying for the job as Chief Chocolate Taster at Willy Wonkas factory.  We’d love to know what you think about them.

Wanted – A sweet tooth and creative mind.

Mr Willy Wonka seeks a chocolate expert to join his team to help ensure that all of the Wonka products are perfect. The ideal candidate will have all their own teeth, the ability to eat sweets all day without being sick and lots and lots of experience in munching, crunching, melting and chewing chocolate.
