Repetition using stamp tool in Digital Media

As part of Art week, Year 3 Bluebirds have been learning about the artist William Morris.

Today as part of their Digital Media lesson with Mr Baddhan, Year 3 Bluebirds looked at one of his drawings and they used the stamp tool in a photo editing program to repeat his style.

The lesson looked at how repetition is used in William Morris’ drawings and how easily this can be integrated using photo editing software.

Here are some of the children’s work.

Election voting

This week year 3 have been learning about voting.

We have learnt about why voting is important for our country and what you have to do when you go to vote.

We did an activity where we worked in groups to make our own political party. We thought about 3 things that our party was most concerned about and then announced these to the rest of the class. We then all had a chance to vote for the party we thought was the best.

Learning about rivers

Today we have learnt that the source of a river is where the river starts and the mouth of a river is where the river ends. We made a river by pouring water down a steep slope and watching the streams join together to make a larger stream of water.

We used maps to find 10 rivers in the UK. We worked out where they start and where they end.
