Forest School collages

Year 3 (Year 3) on: Year 3 Class Blog

This week, in Forest School, we embraced our creativity and made some collages. We thought carefully about the colour and size of the things we collected to help creat our amazing artwork.

This can be done in any outdoor setting. Why not try it next time your out on a walk, at the park or just in your garden?

Hello team Year 3!

What a fantastic start to our year! Mrs Deakin and I were both super impressed with your work!

Well done to our certificate and trophy winners from last week, it was a really hard decision with so much excellent work and behaviour on show in our classroom and around school.

This week we are:

-Continuing Arthur's quest. He's after the roots of the mountain now. Will he get them? Will he make the golden rope? Will he trap Fenrir? Let's find out together.

-After a great start to our place value topic, we're moving on to learning about and partitioning thousands.

-We've learnt about Marcia Williams' early life. This week we'll move onto looking at Robin Hood's front cover and the character in more detail.

-Continuing our artistic journey into portraits exploring more light and shade and use of colour.

-Finding out what William I did in response to Harold Godwinson being crowned king.

-Beginning our Come and See work on Homes and what Jesus' home was like.
