We have been loving our woodlands project so far and this week children worked in small groups to create beautiful lift the flap style information books. Each group was given a different focus area then used books and ipads to research interesting facts. Today’s task was to present their information in a way that would engage the reader. Lots of fantastic team work and creativity. Nice Job p3!
It was a real treat getting to do PE with 3B today. Everyone worked really well in their house groups to complete the 4 stations. Lots of cheering and encouragement went on, along with a healthy bit of competition! The class can’t wait for Sports Day on June 1st.
We are coming to the end of our Elements of Art topic and it has been a total joy to see the children experimenting with different types of art using a variety of materials.
This week we finished our learning about Form by creating our own 3D models out of clay. We quickly learned that we had to work fast with the clay to stop it drying out and there were a few casualties along the way (models not children!).
This afternoon we also enjoyed our final ‘free art’ session. The children could pick with materials they wanted to use to create their own special art work. There was a mix of oil pastels, paints, sketching pencils and pens used. It was so great to see the children applying some of the skills they have learned into their final pieces.
We loved that they were all so unique! Enjoy having a look at some of our creations.
Here are a couple of videos of some of the groups performing their playscripts 🤩 – we have some budding actors in the class for sure!
3B have been focusing on playscripts in Literacy recently. They have been getting to know the structure of them by reading them and this week they wrote their own! In groups the children created the script using post it notes to show the different speaking parts. They added in scene numbers, setting descriptions and even narrators to build the plot and storyline. It was wonderful to feel the excitement and buzz in the room as they worked together. Here are some photos of the creative process ✏️
This week we are focusing on Form in our art topic. Yesterday we looked at how to make 2D shapes look 3D. Today we focused on using various fastenings to turn flat pieces of cardboard into interesting 3D creations. I was super impressed with all the problem solving and creativity. Great work 3B!
The children had a great time today planting the potatoes they had previously selected before the Easter break. They worked in groups to prepare the soil, plant their potato and then water it. Look out for their pondering poses when standing back and thinking about if their potato was in a suitable place to grow!
