10.10.17 Year 3 went to The Den with Mr Green to learn more about volcanoes and the eruption in Pompeii. To help us learn about how the archaeologists made molds of the people in Pompeii we used clay to make our own molds. We then poured glue and baby powder into the mold. After letting it dry we peeled it off the clay and discovered our very own casts. It was very exciting!
In Literacy we have been learning how to write newspaper reports by imitating a WAGOLL text. We learnt about using interesting openers, past tense verbs and inverted commas. What do you think of our finished pieces?
This half term in Year 3 we have been learning about the famous artist William Morris. He is famous for printing patterns inspired by nature and he was one of the first people to print colourful, patterned wallpaper. This week we have tried to imitate his designs by carving potatoes and printing with them. This was quite tricky using clay tools but we persevered. Have a look at the outcome...
We had great fun this week in Year 3 learning about the three different types of rock and the processes in which they are made. We were able to make our own Sedimentary, Metamorphic and Igneous rock using Starburst. This has helped us to make links to understand how rocks are made and also to be able to describe the differences between the three rocks. It was also lots of fun!
This week Year 3 were invited to take part in a self esteem workshop at Bradford City Football Club. We were ever so excited to be able to walk pitch side and sit in the dug out.
Claire at The Positive Lifestyle Centre had lots of fantastic activities for us to take part in including thinking about our special talents, what makes us happy and sad plus what we love about the rest of our class. We had a really fantastic time and learnt lots about ourselves and our friends.
