Calendars for 2021

Today, the Bluebirds in Year 3 had a brilliant (and slightly messy time) time printing their 2021 calendars!

We made prints for the four seasons from polystyrene cards and printed them in black paint.

Each section was a different colour background and a different print for the four seasons.

We put a black boarder around each season to really make it stand out. They look fantastic year 3, well done!

Andy Warhol Pop Art effects

During Computing with Mr Baddhan today, Bluebirds learned about Pop Art and the artist Andy Warhol. They learned about his work and how he made things look interesting using some of his artistic work. We looked at the type of effects he used to make everyday things look interesting and coourful.

Bluebirds used a Pop Art website to add Andy Warhol effects to their own photos. Have a look at the wonderful work they produced to make their photos look interesting.

Cave paintings

In art this afternoon, the Bluebirds in Year 3 were sketching their own cave drawing in the style of a Stone Age cave painting. We used the illustrations in the back of our class reader from last term, Stone Age Boy for reference and inspiration.

Our LO was design our own cave painting, our sketches will be used when we are painting in our next lesson.

Daisy’s home learning work!

Last week the Bluebirds were learning at home, Mrs Moore was so pleased with the work that was given in on Monday and the effort everyone put into their work. Many gold and silver cards were given out to the children who did some excellent work.

One of the home learning tasks was to draw or paint a picture that resembled a cave painting. Daisy C gave in her paintings on Monday and it was clear how hard she had worked on them. Mrs Moore was extremely impressed and Daisy’s paintings will be displayed on our Stone Age display!

Well done Daisy C!

Our Stone Age Boy Display

This afternoon in Golden Time, year 3 worked together to create the Boy and Om for our Stone Age Boy display. We all painted small bits to create each character to go on our display board in the hall.

When the characters are finished they will go on the board along with some of our work, including, our letter to Om, our diary entries and photographs of our fantastic Stonehenge in clay.

Coming soon… watch this space!

Stonehenge in clay!

Last week on Friday, we had a rather messy topic lesson in year 3! We were recreating Stonehenge in clay!

First, we came up with some ideas to why Stonehenge might have been built – we had some fantastic ones!

Then we had a go at making parts of Stonehenge in clay to bring together to form a class collaboration of Stonehenge in clay.

It looks really impressive – well done Year 3, what a team effort!

Representing our feelings

In PSHE this week, we discussed our feelings. Bluebirds thought about different types of feelings and what can make us feel that way. On the interactive white board, we looked at different pictures and images and talked about how they made us feel or what emotion they were representing.

We decided a beach was relaxing and calm, a thunderstorm was scared or maybe angry and a tree in the wind might represent being sad.

We drew our own pictures to represent different emotions and feelings, have a look and see if you can guess which one they are!
