Year 3 had a brilliant last week and topped it all off with a lovely day, yesterday.
In English this week, the class worked hard to finish writing their letters to Michael Morpurgo. All of the children have chosen questions to ask the famous author and, on Friday, we went to the local Post Office to send them to London. Fingers crossed , we’ll receive a reply soon!
After we had posted the letters, we headed to the Forest School to create some forest faces for the final part of the Picasso art unit. The children used clay and the natural materials they could find around them.
The week was finished off with our whole-school Jubilee tea party. It was a wonderful atmosphere and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves (and all their food) in the sunshine.
Enjoy the half-term break, everyone!
The children have been busy this week continuing to learn about fractions. At the start of the week, they enjoyed playing different fraction games to consolidate and apply their understanding of equivalent fractions, fractions of amounts and fractions of shapes. There was an added challenge of working together to understand the rules of each game.
In Art, the children became mini Picassos and created their own pieces of artwork inspired by his different techniques and styles.
The children first created a collage base, using different paper backgrounds, and then drew faces with black marker pen over the top. Finally, they added blocks of colour, using water colours, to their pictures. They look fantastic!
Have a lovely weekend!
This week, the class have been learning about the male and female parts of a flower. After the children had learned about the different parts of a flower, we went for a walk around the school to explore the flowers and see if we could spot the parts that make up the stamen (m) and carpel (f).
During their art lesson with Miss Jackson, the children went to the Forest School area to create nature colour wheels. They went hunting for different flowers, leaves and twigs to complete their colour wheel.
Have a lovely weekend.
This week, Year 3 have been creating some lovely poetry based on the book 'The Lost Words.' The children have been using their senses to explore their surroundings.
In SCARF this week, the children role played their own short 'campaigns' to encourage people to drink more water or cover their mouths when they sneeze to prevent getting ill. All the children had great fun!
Below are a couple of photos from last week's dance session. We have our second lesson on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend!
