Happy Summer Year 3

A big thank you from the whole Year 3 team. We have been really impressed with all the children this year and how engaged they have been in their learning.

Thanks Year 3!

Here we are after our ” water fun” enjoying a well earned lolly!

 

Have a really great summer .

Year 3 ART WEEK

This week was art week.  The children have enjoyed leaarning about art and artists from around the world with a special focus upon France. They did 3 sessions on Matisse, Seurat and Monet.  We explored drawing, painting and collage skills and we can now name many more famous artists.

We also found time to do some practical maths in the sunshine. We estimated and measured the capacity of different containers and quite enjoyed any splashes which cooled us down!

 

Finally, in DT we have been designing and making our own moving shadow puppets and have been performing our own plays.

 

Furry Friday!

To support our chosen charity as voted for by the school council (the RSPCA), we have raised money by donating £1 to dress up in our best animal gear for Furry Friday. The range of different creatures on display were furbulous!

We’ve also received some brilliant home learning, where gorgeous pieces of art work around tsunamis have been produced- we have some very talented artists in year 3! This creativity and attention to detail will be very much needed for Art week starting on Monday!

Enjoy the sunshine this weekend- don’t forget to apply suncream, stay hydrated and have buckets of fun!

Great learning in Year 3

As usual we have been really impressed with the super home learning that has been going on.

Well done to Rufus who really got into the role of explorer!

Lots of you produced super posters this week. Here is one of our school councillors busy creating an eye-catching poster for our forthcoming RSPCA fundraiser.

Check out this cool exploding volcano!

In maths we have made great progress in using the four operations and choosing the correct calculations for different word problems. Her we are sorting word problems into addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.

In art we looked at the wonderful patterns created by the artist Escher. We made our own tesselating templates to create wonderful patterns. This took lots of skill and concentration!

Finally, in science we turned off all the lights to explore how light travels in a striaght line. We shone torches onto a mirror to find out in which direction the reflected light shone.
