In Year 3 this week we have been doing Maths and in Maths we were problem solving using the whole part, part model, and complex problems are quite hard. In English we have written our last piece of the Egyptian Cinderella which was quite fun. In Science we have looked at the functions of the parts of the plants. We did the function of the roots and stalk and today we learnt that the leaves help to feed the plant. In History, we learnt about Mummification and learnt  how to make a mummy but we didn’t actually make one. It was fun this week, we have started to give gold stars out for gold standard presentation.

There are stories about people who want to live forever.

This is not one of those stories.

This is a story about someone who wants to stop…

Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy – except he’s 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.

Obviously no one believes him.

So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live…

… which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.

“A bear on Paddington Station?” said Mrs Brown in amazement. “Don’t be silly – there can’t be.”

Paddington Bear had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru when the Brown family first met him on Paddington station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same… for ordinary things become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is involved.

Boggis is an enormously fat chicken farmer who only eats boiled chickens smothered in fat.
Bunce is a duck-and-goose farmer whose dinner gives him a beastly temper.
Bean is a turkey-and-apple farmer who only drinks gallons of strong cider.
Mr Fox is so clever that every evening he creeps down into the valley and helps himself to food from the farms.
Now the farmers have hatched a plan to BANG-BANG-BANG shoot Mr Fox dead. But, just when they think Mr Fox can’t possibly escape, he makes a fantastic plan of his own . . .

51S7N6CI+zL._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_

A hundred years ago, in the Himalayan peaks of Nanvi Dar, the daughter of an English earl is kidnapped by a huge hairy monster. In a secret valley Agatha Farley is introduced to a family of motherless yetis and devotes her life to their upbringing. She teaches them to speak, tells them stories and insists on polite manners. But as the decades pass, tourists come to the mountains, a hotel is built and yeti-hunters arrive. Agatha knows that there is one place in the world where they would be protected – her ancestral home at Farley Towers. When a boy and his sister stumble upon her hidden valley, she knows she has found the courageous people who will carry out her plan. The excited yetis are smuggled into the bridal suite at the hotel. A freezer lorry is waiting to put them into semi-hibernation on the long trip home. But the baby yak that has fallen in love with the youngest yeti foils the refrigeration plan and they set off on a hugely entertaining road trip half way across the world. In the Sultan of Aslerfan’s kingdom the yetis release all the animals from his zoo. In the Alps they rescue a lost child in a blizzard. In Spain, the yak creates chaos at a bullfight. But when they arrive in England, a terrible shock awaits them at Farley Towers..
