Year Three have been reading the story of the Old Woman who lived in a Vinegar Bottle. In this story, the poor old woman rescues a magic fish who will grant her anything she wants. As the story goes on, she becomes greedier and greedier, even losing her manners as she asks for things.
We have created our own versions of the story in pairs. Some of us chose to follow the original plot but change the details. Others reversed the story, making it appear that a rich and greedy person is taught a lesson about being humble.
Here we are reading our story plots to another pair.
Following on from our previous learning, we compared Victorian maps of the area with modern OS maps. We spotted that the junction at Taylor's shop is still there, although it is a roundabout now. Other things which were the same are Colne Cricket Club, Keighley Road, Castle Road and various names of the hills.
Differences included the fact that Park High and Park Primary were not built so were not on the Victorian map. More houses have been built since the Victorian map was created.
Year Three have been looking at different OS maps of our local area. We looked at how the scale of the map has an impact on how an area is represented and how the map looks.
Year Three had a go at plotting their journey to school on the map. Here are some of our children showing the rest of the class which roads the take in their morning route to school. 🗺
