Welcome to Year 3.
Keep On Reading with Mr Kemp
We were given a book to take home for someone to read to us. We were then visited by Mr Kemp who challenged us to a quiz about what we had read in the story, 'The Boy Who Sprouted Antlers.' We won all the rounds!
We have looked at cave paintings and what they can tell us about life in prehistoric Britain. We then created our own cave wall and painted an animal in the style of the prehistoric cave paintings we have explored.
In Year 3, we have been enjoying learning to sing and play the song 'Let Your Spirit Fly'. Here we are learning to play it on the glockenspiels!
We looked at the work of the famous artist Henri Matisse and learnt all about his life. We then created our own artwork in the style of some of his most famous pieces.
Properties of rocks
In Year 3, we have been learning all about different types of rocks. We carried out an investigation to compare the properties of different rocks. We tested their durability, permeability, density and if they were hard or soft. The most surprising thing we saw was the floating pumice rock!
