Welcome to Year 3
Cherry & Hazel Classes
English in 'Chayzel' has been fantastic on the last week of term. The children have created some brilliant reports on their own alien and have shown great enthusiasm in making their aliens unique and 'out of this world'. The children have used the English skills they have learnt throughout the last two terms to produce some wonderful work. They will be taking a copy of this to show all their family over the Christmas holidays. Well done, Year 3!
Our art lessons for this half-term have focused on collage. In this particular lesson, children were creating a piece of collage using natural found materials.
Stone Age Day was a great success and enjoyed by all the Year 3 children (and adults). Throughout the day, the children participated in fruit gathering, hunting with spears, placed events on a timeline, made Stone Age houses, created cave paintings and dissected Stone Age poo! They also listened to a story, 'Stone Age Boy'.
In memory of Queen Elizabeth II, Year 3 replicated a penny from 1961 using the printing technique. The history behind this penny was significant for the Queen as it symbolised the beginning of her reign and the use of her face and name on our currency. The children had lots of fun using this skill and then creating some wonderful pieces of work. Both myself and Mrs Bailey are extremely proud of the hard work that went into this and have displayed the children's work across our corridor.
Year 3 have enjoyed starting their fabulous collage topic this term in art. They have enjoyed using a range of materials to create pictures of a wide range of objects, ranging from fruit to bowls. They have been able to show great patience by organising each part of their work and then combining it together to make a final product. Well done to the whole of Year 3!
