Harvest Day

On Monday 15th October, Thorpe celebrated Harvest time with a whole day dedicated to thinking about how and why we celebrate Harvest. In Year 3, we wrote acrostic poems and studied the paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who was famous for painting portraits made up of fruit and vegetables. We had a go at our own self-portraits in the style of Arcimboldo!





English Grammar


We read pairs of sentences then matched appropriate conjunctions to join them. We focussed on coordinating conjunctions, including for, and, nor, but, or, yet and so.
