Budding Young Artisits

User Rating:  / 1

This week Year Three have been lucky enough to have a special visitor. Chris Ryder is a caricature artist and she came in for a two hour workshop with the children. All of the children got to develop their drawing skills, with a special emphasis on the face. She gave the children tips and tricks for drawing eyes, noises and hair. The children had lots of fun and enjoyed drawing funny, sad and evil faces! During the workshop they even got to watch the artisit draw an image using an iPad and a special app. 

At the start of the week Year Three also got to spend the whole day cuting and sewing their tie dye t-shirts that were inspired by the 1960s fashion. The children showed lots of perserance practising thier running stitch.

On Wednesday we all became young scientists when we visited The Big Bang Science Fair at the NEC! The Big Bang Fair is an award-winning combination of exciting theatre shows, interactive workshops and exhibits. We all really enjoyed watching the first main show, it was full of guts and gore! We even got to see the inside of somebodies stomach! Throughout the day we visited lots of stalls including ones with bugs, virtual headsets and magical magnets.

On Thursday we had a great day celebrating World Book Day! We all looked brilliant in our costumes. There were witches, wizards, bears and much, much more! The Year Three theme this year was Beatrix Potter.

Throughout the day we got to complete lots of exciting activities linked to maths, literacy and art. The activities included: planting (carrot, radish and lettuce) seeds for a Beatrix Potter garden, writing setting descriptions, designing a new coin and sketching animals.



Watercolour Wave Paintings

We explored the painting "The Great Wave" by Katsushika Hokusai.

We used watercolours and different painting techniques to create our own wave paintings. We learned that sometimes painting the surface of the paper in water first gives a pale wash effect.

This half term our Science topic is Electricity. We started this topic in the Phiz Lab and it was very exciting! We got to investigate circuits by predicting which ones would work and would not work. We then tested them to see if we were correct. Over the next few weeks we will also be learning about conductors and insulators.



Christmas Blog

User Rating:  / 1

To get our countdown to Christmas started, year 3 and 4 held a phase quiz. The phase gathered to answer some rather tricky questions in a bid to win a star prize. Mr Melville created the quiz and had been particularly clever/mean with some of his questions! The children were mixed across the phase and loved interacting with different children from other classes. Excellent behaviour was displayed at all times… well done guys!

This week we have enjoyedlinking our Topic and Literacy lessons together! Using the Ipads and information bookletsn we have been researching extreme weathers, for example hurricanes. We have learnt how they are formed, how fast the winds are and how to survive them! We have used this research we create newspaper articles, information posters and non-chronological reports.

Over the next few weeks Year 3 will be become animators, using a programme called Scratch. This week we have already been able to input demands to make the sprite character move across the screen. We will also be learning how to make the character speak. As well as having lots of fun changing the backgrounds of the stories we create.

This week Year 3 have been busy designing, making and painting clay pots. The children had to research the shapes, colours and patterns to inspire there own pots. They had to show lots of perseverance when they joined their handles to their pots. Some of the children even painted images of Greek althlets on theirs!

How does our digestive system work?

User Rating:  / 2

This week in science year 3 have been learning all about the digestive system. We have been using lots of scientific vocabulary to name and describe the function of the organs. We have used chocolate, bread and tights to create a model of the digestive system, showing what each organ does and where the food goes next.

These pictures show how the digestive system works:
