What we’ve been doing…

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

The children are currently studying Barbara Hepworth in Art and she has an exhibition at the park. They loved seeing her work in real life, as well as other sculptures around the park. The children were given an iPad and tasked with taking photos of the artwork and the surrounding area. I think we have a few budding photographers on our hands looking at some of the pictures they have taken. They are fantastic. The children will spend the next week creating sculptures of their own, taking inspiration from what they have seen today.

Stone Age Day

'As part of our topic on the Stone Age, Year 3 have enjoyed a Stone Age day. Throughout the day they had a go at cave painting, flint knapping, jewellery making and even made an edible Stongehenge. As you can see from the pictures, they had a wonderful time and created some fantastic pieces of work.'

Cooking Up A Storm!

This is part of our Year 3 DT project, making a European dish. Throughout the process, the children have taken surveys to see what the most popular flavour of pizza is, tasted different types of bread to see which one was most suitable for making pizzas, designed their own pizzas, visited Morrisons to buy the ingredients and made the pizzas entirely from scratch. Parents were also invited in to sample the pizzas with the children and see what they have been doing throughout the unit.
