Spring Term! 

 

Below are the Curriculum Organisers full of many of the wonderful things we will be learning this term! 

Egyptian Day! 

We had a super time with our visitor Mrs Liddington learning lots about the Ancient Egyptians. We looked at many things: mummification, ancient technology, papyrus, maps, craft and ancient maths!

Bible stories in art! 

We learnt about the story of Noah's Ark and thought about how special Noah must have been to have been chosen by God. 

Then, we looked at many different paintings and pictures that show this Bible story. 

We discussed what part of the story they depicted, what we we liked about them and then sketched quick pictures inspired by our favourite artwork. 

Acting out the Bible story of Noah's Ark!

Art

In art, we have begun learning about the artist Keith Haring. We spent time looking at examples of his artwork and finding the features he liked to use. Features like: strong, bold colours, simple people outlines, black lines, dogs and movement lines.

We worked together to think of the things we 'want and need' and what we want our time in Year 3 to be like. Then, we created rockets that included our hopes and the things we would do to make sure that our class is a happy place to learn and have fun.

We looked at using the words 'a and an' (types of determiners) and how vowel and consonant sounds beginning the next word change when we should use them. We also worked hard on using adjectives between the determiners and nouns to see what would happen.
