Class 3, have been busy immersing themselves in the Stone Age topic this term and even tried to make their very own prehistoric jewellery. It took a lot of perseverance and attention to detail in order to master these salt dough creations, but it was also a lot of fun!
This week, Class 3 took on the exciting challenge of creating their very own Stone Age cave painting, as a class. It took a lot of collaborative creativity and attention to detail but the outcome is an absolute masterpiece!
At the end of last term, we finally got around to carrying out our volcano eruptions. We wrapped up warm, embraced the cold and took our beautifully crafted volcanoes outside to carry out these controlled explosions. There was a great deal of excitement and laughs as we observed each of these eruptions; we discovered that every one was different dependent on the velocity at which the 'lava' came out and gradient of the slope.
We started this term with a cross curricular English and art link. After the reading 'The Pebble in my Pocket' we tried our hands at illustrating our own volcanoes and identifying the rich description used in the text.
In Art this week, we have continued to look at Roman mosaics and moved on to creating our own symmetrical patterns.
