Year 3 Reading Challenge – Autumn 1


The brightly lit classroom was warm and comfortable compared to the winter weather outside.  The large clock’s tick could be heard with the low hum of the computer next to the teacher’s desk.  The atmosphere was quiet and peaceful, almost as if the room was relaxed and preparing itself for the busy day when the children arrived.  Clean desks, sharpened pencils, a polished floor and the new date on the interactive white board.  Everything was now ready for the first lesson of the day.  The loud bell echoed and the thundering footsteps approached to alter the calm room for the next six hours.


  1. List three adjectives and define them.


  1. Where does this setting remind you of? Would you like to visit it? Why?


  1. Who do you think is making the ‘thundering footsteps?’


  1. Write a short setting description based on your classroom at Broad Heath. Make sure you use WOW adjectives and adverbs!

    Comfortable-(especially of clothes or furnishings) providing physical ease and relaxation.

    The setting reminds me of a school classroom. Yes I would like to visit the school and see how the classroom is .


    I think it could be the workers fixing stuff.


    There is a massive princess and frog display in the classroom. In front of the fantastic display is some tables where all the students sit and do there work .
