Dan the Skipping Man visited Hallsville for P.E week. He taught the children many different techniques for skipping and the kids had a wonderful time and got their bodies moving. 

Year 3 have been celebrating cultural diversity week and have been making Japanese oriental fans. We learnt a lot about Japan and their culture and were really inspired to make our own. 

 

The year 3 classes travelled back in time and became immersed in the life of Ancient Egyptians. They wrote hieroglyphics, made perfumes, amulets and bread and ended their day with a large festival where they got to perform and enjoy a feast fit for the Ancient Egyptians. They thoroughly enjoyed the day and will remember it for many years to come.

Lee Valley Trip – Stone Age Day 

Geology Day 

Year 3 had their geology day this week and were surprised to learn that nearly everything around us is made from rocks. They explored different types of rocks and grouped them according to their properties. They learnt about erosion and weathering and got to make fossils out of clay. They had a wonderful time and were immersed into their learning. 

Sculpture 

Year 3 have been working on creating relief sculptures using Modroc. We chose a symbol to represent our beliefs and turned it into a 3D sculpture. Finally, we painted it using metallic pain.  The final results look fantastic and we had a create time creating them. 

Clay Dragon Eyes 

We designed our dragon eyes over the holiday based on dragons we had chosen in school and then we made them into 3D dragon eyes using clay. We used marbles for their eye balls and decorated them with detail. We will go on to painting them once they have dried.

June 

London Zoo

Year 3 went to London Zoo to learn all about the animals and experience them in their habitats. We got to see some rare animals like the Okapi. We saw some tigers, gorillas and an array of birds. We even got to see the monkeys up close as they swung on the ropes and played together. We had a brilliant time and we are even going to use the animals and their habitats as influence for our 3D frame designs which we will make later on this term. 

Hilarious Hat Day 

Today we travelled back in time to the ancient Egyptian civilisation. We learnt about their beliefs and festivals and got immersed in their afterlife rituals. It was an unforgettable day!

Year 3 had their art day today and were taught by an art specialist from Bow Arts. The really enjoyed using water colours to paint in the style of the artist, Georgia O’keefe. They learnt how to blend and make different textures on paper. They then did a blended background wash which they cut up and made into a collage. After that, they cut out a picture of a flower using a stencil and stuck it on to another background wash which they did earlier.  The outcome was wonderful. What a splendid day!
