Archive – what we got up to last year

International Day

Year Three visited Australia and India and Iran. In Australia they looked at aboriginal art and had a go at their own. In India they looked at Henna hand designs and made their own. In both countries they used Google Earth to visit famous places such as The Taj Mahal and The Sydney Opera House. In Iran they made Khatam Clay tiles and used Islamic art patterns to decorate them.

What we have been doing

Year 3 In the first half term in Year 3 the children have spent two weeks looking at the earth’s structure, volcanoes and the seven continents. The children worked hard on learning new vocabulary, making a model of the earth, locating the most famous volcanoes in the world and creating fact files for them. They recapped on their knowledge of the continents from Year 2 and looked at where items in their homes had come from.

The children spent a week being very creative looking at portraits using different mediums. They created a range of self-portraits using pencil, paint and materials. They all did really well and the teachers were very impressed with how engaged they were with the process.

Nativity

Year 3 put on a fabulous nativity to a small audience of governors. 

What have we been doing?

Year 3’s topic this term is focused on pre-history – in particular the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. The children enjoyed a visit from the Museum of London where they explored Stone Age history. In art they have created collages inspired by the environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy.

They have also had a series of athletics sessions run by Non-Stop Action as part of their PE curriculum.

Year 3 are now rehearsing for their nativity show which will be filmed at the end of term.

Y3 have been doing athletics in PE with the coach from Non Stop Action.

As we are not going on trips this year, Year 3 had a visit at school from the Museum of London. This was to help with our learning about our topic of Prehistory.
