Over the last few weeks, the fabulous Year Threes have been working hard and enthusiastically to create wonderful and exciting items to sell at our Christmas fair on Monday 10th December (3.15 – 4.15 pm). Year Three planned and coordinated the making of exquisite, rustic Christmas decorations including elves, Christmas trees, reindeer and hanging decorations.
All items will be on sale at the Christmas Fair. In addition to this we have a GIANT reindeer which will be raffled.
All proceeds will go towards the year group in order to facilitate school outings and special resources as needed.
We had a brilliant time yesterday at the Jerwood Gallery! The gallery was shut to the public so we had it all to ourselves. We explored the exhibitions and admired many of the wonderful artworks there. Our particular favourite was ‘Quetin Blake’s World of Hats’. Working alongside our local, talented artist and children’s poet Ed Boxall, the children were able to recreate their favourite piece in the style of Quentin Blake. We then set to work in the studio adding colour and planning for our very own exhibition which will be on show at the Jerwood at the end of the academic year!
Many thanks to all of the parent helpers that joined us – we could not have done it without you. We hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did.
We had a fantastic time at the Christmas Enterprise selling our wonderful woodland craft made by year 3. Thank you to everyone who came along to support us and bought the beautiful crafts helping to raise money for the year 3 fund. The money raised will enable us to explore more extra curricular learning!
We are learning all about plants this term. We have learnt about the parts of the plant and their function. We tried to demonstrate the movement of water up the stem of the plant by using celery placed in water dyed with food colouring. Unfortunately, as with many of the best science experiments, it didn’t work! This did give us a good opportunity to evaluate our investigation, identify what might have gone wrong and what we could do better next time! At least our sunflowers are coming along nicely!
