What we have been doing this term:
Year Three’s major topic this term has been the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages . They have been learning about the Animals , Tools, Homes and Art. The topic was reinforced with a trip to the Museum of London where the children got to see and learn about various Artefacts from Pre history, these included, weapons, jewellery and the first coins. The children and staff had a great time and learnt a lot.
In science they have been learning about rocks and magnets. To tie in with this the children have taken part in a science curriculum day on rocks and fossils run by GeoBus. They have also had a series of gymnastics sessions run by Non-Stop Action as part of their indoor PE curriculum. Year 3 will soon be rehearsing for their nativity show at the end of term.
National Y3 Tate Project
Holly Park Primary School is one of over 1,500 London primary schools involved in the Tate Year 3 Project, one of the world’s most ambitious contemporary art projects. Explored through the vehicle of the traditional school class photograph, a vast new art work is one of the most ambitious portraits of children ever undertaken in the UK.
Year 3 have been working with a Coach from Non Stop Action doing Gymnastics on the apparatus.
The children in Year have been looking at the work of artist Andy Goldsworthy who uses natural materials to create pieces of art. The children collected their own natural materials and made their own pieces of art using them.
