Trip to St Albans
Year Three had a wonderful trip to St Albans Cathedral. The visit brought their History topic on the Romans to life. During the visit they learnt about the life of St Alban and took part in a role play exercise. In the afternoon they learnt about Roman mosaics and created their very own mosaics which are now on display in the classroom.
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
As part of their R.E. learning, Year 3 have been exploring the Parable of the Mustard Seed, in which a tiny seed grows into a huge plant. Here are some beautiful examples of the children’s art work, linked to this story.
It has been wonderful seeing some of the creative learning that Year 3 have been doing this week 🙂 The children have clearly been busy doing a variety of activities, including drawings birds; collages; making monster worry boxes; mindful colouring; making bird feeders; creating robot masks and much more… Well done everyone – very impressive!
Van Gogh inspired artwork:
The children have been learning about famous artists, including Vincent Van Gogh. Here are some of their fantastic pieces of artwork inspired by Van Gogh.
Georges Seurat’s Pointillism:
We have been very impressed by Year 3’s amazing artwork, which was inspired by Georges Seurat’s pointillism technique.
The children have clearly been busy with their distance learning since the Easter holidays. It’s fantastic to see some of the activities they have been doing, such as ‘Super Bear’ competition designs in support of the NHS; creative computing; Lego models; plant life cycles; and St. George’s Day shields! Year 3 are also enjoying their new class text, ‘Fly Eagle Fly’.
Easter Holiday Activities:
It has been so lovely seeing some of the wonderful creations and activities that the children have been doing over the Easter break. These include creating beautiful stained glass windows; making Easter trees; writing Easter poems; making Easter baskets and Easter Gardens; and working on projects. It looks like they have had a fun and creative time!
This week, Mrs Harris asked Year Three to draw portraits. We have been so impressed with the detailed pictures that have been sent to us.
