Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat!
This term we have been learning about Joseph and his amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat in our RE sessions and we have been looking at Quentin Blake and his work as an illustrator. Today we put these two skills together to create a Quentin Blake inspired Joseph. I am incredibly proud of the effort and outcomes that Year 3/4 have created today. We wanted to share our joy with you all!
We have been experimenting with making light! Today Year 3/4 have had all of the components to make a complete circuit, they have experimented until they have made their light bulb glow! We have had some very successful circuits today!
Today as part of Eco Club we created Art from the wonderful nature around us. We have left some of it out on the playground, see if you can spy it tomorrow...
Roald Dahl week.
This week we have explored Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes, finding the differences between the Rhymes and the original story. We made grasshoppers, like in James and the Giant Peach and we made Nishnobblers like the ones in The Giraffe, The Pelly and me. What a lovely week! Thank you Year 3/4!
Welcome to your first term back Year 3/4!

This week I challenged Year 3 to create Calligram poems about any key worker. Abbie created a poem about ASDA workers and all of the hard work they are doing through this difficult time, she even took the extra time to publish it!
Pop Art! This week I challenged Year 3 to find out what Pop Art was, where it was first used and any influential artists that used this method. Once they had done all of this I asked them to find a piece they liked best and have a go at recreating it! Here is our wonderful art!
Calligram Poems - This week in Year 3 we have been looking at calligram poems, which are poems that take the shape of their subject. We though it would be nice to show our appreciation to all of those who work for the NHS in this difficult time, and dedicate our poems to them! Here is some of our fabulous work!
