Our daily challenge was to create something that would be shown in an art gallery. The children have created some wonderful masterpieces.
The 30 day Music Challenge is coming to an end…I hope you have all had fun choosing songs to suit each day.
Today is day 27 – “Listen to a song that you have listened to with your best friend”. A good choice for today might be, “You’ve got a friend in me” from the film Toy Story.
I hope you have enjoyed the challenge so far…only a few more songs to go 🙂
Since the theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is kindness, we asked the children to ‘fill someone’s bucket’. This was inspired by the wonderful book by Carol McCloud. The children found different ways to show their love and appreciation for family, friends and teachers. We hope it fills your bucket when you look at the pictures and messages.
Our daily challenge was to photograph the nature around us. This could be in the garden or out on a walk. It is fantastic to see the varied photos and proof that the nature surrounding us is beautiful!
Last week Year 3 completed an art project based on the contemporary British Artist David Hockney. The children looked at one of his famous pieces and thought carefully about the contrasting colours and the effects this creates.
They did lots of experimenting with mixing different combinations of primary colours to achieve a variety of different shades. After that they investigated different tools and what effects and textures they would create.
The final part of the project was to explore the landscapes around them and use the artistic skills they had practised to sketch and colour their own landscape. We are super impressed with what they have created. Fabulous work Year 3! Do you recognise any of their chosen landscapes?
During Science week, Year 3 completed a comic strip with a message relating to saving our environment. Our children chose to focus on either; littering, chopping trees or recycling. As their comics were so brilliant, we decided to post them to Blue Peter. Over the past few days, lots of children have been emailing us with fantastic news that they have received an Eco (green) Badge. We are so proud of their achievements, Well done Year 3!
