Year 3 Gallery & Work 21/22

As part of our Stone Age topic, we have been looking at Cave paintings. We talked about the images, what colours were used and how they were able to create the colours without paints. We sketched our own on tea-stained paper then shaded them using oil pastels!

In English, we have been working hard on improving our work. We were given a piece of writing which we had to up-level using adjective, adverbs and prepositions. We are going to use this knowledge to improve our own independent writes this week!

We are working hard this week on writing a setting description about a Stone Age cave. We are using our 5 senses to describe that would be around us, and we can’t wait to show you our finished pieces!

Since coming back to school, we have been working so hard in Year 3! We have done lots of work "all about us". We created a leaflet all about ourselves, then used our excellent literacy skills to write it!

In maths, we have been learning all about place value and the value of 3-digit numbers. We have been using our reasoning skills and even applying our knowledge to solve some tricky problems.

We have done a lot of PSHE work since coming back to school all about friendships. We have talked about what makes a good friend and how to welcome new children into our class. We thought of some really good advice!

We have also been looking at the artist Pablo Picasso. We learned he was from Spain, lived in France and was famous for painting faces. He had a very unique style of art which we tried to recreate using a collage of facial features.
