Light graffiti

Year 3 have continued their Urban Pioneers topic this aftermoon by looking at light graffiti. They have been experimenting with the iPads with some interesting outcomes!

 

Year 3 strings project

On Wednesday afternoon, Year 3 began their strings project. The children listened really well and began to learn how to correctly hold their instruments.

Sewing Christmas baubles

Year 3 have been busy today learning to sew to create a Christmas bauble. A lot of resilience has been shown as, for many, this was their first time sewing. The end result was fantastic! A big thank you to the parents/grandparents/carers who came and helped us today.

 

 

The Magical Christmas Jigsaw

A huge congratulations to our year 3’s and 4’s. They have performed superbly today.  We are incredibly lucky to have such talented, dedicated children. Well done children, enjoy your parties this week. You have worked so hard you deserve them.

A massive thank you to our team of adults too. Costumes, props, music and directions were brilliant.

 

 

The Ultimate Predator

Children have had great fun during their innovate week, creating their ultimate predator. This involved merging 2 predatory animals or plants to create the fiercest, deadliest predator of all time!

Various predators evolved, such as:

Snion (snake and lion)

Flychee (Venus flytrap and cheater)

Eagodile (Eagle and crocodile)

 

Aquatic predators

Today, Year 3 have learnt about aquatic predators, where they live and what makes some of these apex predators.

They have made sea scene pictures including an aquatic predator from chalks and pastels and then have created pictures on a drawing app on the ipads.

 

  

Crocodile Models

Children have designed a brilliant model of a crocodile this week, ready for our art afternoon. They thought about all the equipment they would need, as well as the style of the model. Lots of cardboard boxes and egg boxes to be used!

Year 3 RE Display Work

We have been working hard in Religious Education, answering the Big Question; Is Christmas a festival of light or love? In addition to looking at important Christian beliefs, we have also learned about the use of light in other religious festivals, including the Jewish festival of Hanukkah and the Sikh and Hindu festival of Diwali.

Birds of Prey!

Year 3 had a very exciting morning yesterday and encountered some amazing predatory animals (some of which flew over our heads). From a huge, fierce looking golden eagle to a cute hedgehog from Madagascar, we learnt lots of interesting facts to help us in our Predators topic.
