The Mousehole Cat

4W are using soft pastels to create these amazing images of this story.

Billy Goats Gruff troll found guilty.

Today, year 3 put the troll from the Three Billy Goats Gruff story on trial in their very own classroom courtroom.

Members of the prosecution and defence teams put questions to the troll and the three billy goats, and it was left to the jury to decide whether the troll was guilty of trying to eat the billy goats or whether the billy goats had made up the tale as an excuse for knocking the troll off of the bridge.

It seems there are 2 sides to every story.

See pictures from the courtroom below.

You Choose characters

Year 3 have been using the You Choose book to help them create a character.

They made their characters out of plasticine.

Then they wrote some fantastic character descriptions.

Year 3, can you tell us some information about your character?
