We learned to take our own photographs of the area around school. Then we used them for our art work. We used the iPads to make computer based art of our photographs like David Hockney and we used watercolours to make our own paintings too. Can you recognise any of the buildings?
In our Community topic we have been thinking about what we can do to make a difference. We have been learning about the problems of too much plastic in our world and the effect this can have on the environment. This led us to make our own posters to explain the problems and show how important it is to re-use or recycle plastic items.
In Year 3 we had great fun celebrating World Book Day at home and in school. We dressed up, read parts of our favourite stories and designed our own book worlds.
I am very impressed with how hard everyone is working to learn times table facts off by heart and out of order. We got a certificate and won a prize for this last week in school as part of our Maths competitions. Well done Class 7. Keep practising at home 🙂.
Class 7 have created some fantastic art work this week using ideas from the Beowulf story. They thought carefully about the mood they wanted to create and used different types of paint and different sized brushes to create their work. Some paintings show the monster Grendel as well as the hall. The backgrounds might be darker to make it feel more spooky or more brightly coloured to show the monster has been beaten. What do you think of our brilliant work?
Certificate Winners - for past 3 weeks and Birthdays too!
This half term in Year 3 our English work is connected to the Anglo-Saxon myth Beowulf. We haven't found out who Beowulf is yet but we think he might be the hero of the story. On Friday we enjoyed drama work to help us think about how the warriors felt in the great hall when they knew their laughter had woken the monster Grendel. We are going to learn more about the Anglo-Saxons next week. Can you find out anything about them at home?
We have had great fun in Year 3 learning about the history of Britain. First, we found out about the Stone Age and we learned that Stone Age people created their own art. They made cave paintings using ground up rocks to make their own paint and they painted on walls. We used chalk and charcoal to find out what it was like to draw outside.
