We read the wonderful book : THE FIRST DRAWING. I wonder who did draw the very first picture? What do you think?
Next, we explored line and tone in our Art Books. We did some very careful shading.
We watched some short animated films to help us find out what life was like in Britain in the Stone Age.
We have been looking at pictures of the Stone Age to see how things have changed.
On Friday, we started our Year 3 Longitudinal Study. We will be investigating how different areas in the school grounds change over time. Some super vocabulary was used today!
This week we have finished our book “Ug”, about a forward-thinking Stone Age boy who longs for change and progress. Most of all, he would like something soft - after all, wearing stone trousers and sleeping under a slab of stone (duvet!) Is not very comfortable...
Therefore, in DT we have decided to make a soft toy for Ug and after exploring toys from home we will design, cut and sew our pattern.
On Thursday we spent the day learning about an aspect of Black History focusing on Art and Poetry. We were surprised and saddened about the way in which coloured people have been treated in the past. We learned how coloured people came to America.
During our Science lessons this week, we have been geologists looking closely at rocks to observe their properties. We used some fantastic vocabulary to explain our observations?
Can you remember which type of rock is which?
We have had a really busy week! Both classes put on their growth mind-sets and got stuck into cutting and sewing their fabric to make the soft toy for Ug. What a lot of hidden sewing talent we have! Thank you very much to the parents who helped us thread needles all morning (!) and who supported the children brilliantly. We have made a great start, watch this space for photos of our projects in progress...
