Week 6: Class 3 focused on the Maori culture of New Zealand for culture week. Through charcoal artwork, we designed our own Ta Moko (facial markings) based on examples from the internet. Here are some of Class 3's interpretations.
Week 5: We closed our RE topic on Journeys with a child led Liturgy where we celebrated our learning.
Week 4: Class 3 closed their instructional writing unit by creating instructions on how to dissect an owl pellet! The class have worked really hard on including features we would expect to see in this genre. Here are a few examples of all their hard work.
Week 3: Continuing with our focus on birds of prey, Class 3 got yucky and dissected an Owl Pellet! Owl Pellets are created by spitting up any undigested parts of animals, such as bones, fur or feathers, that have been eaten by the owl. Our next step is to write a set of instructions on this afternoons's lesson.
Week 2: Do you know the wing span of any birds of prey? Well Class 3 do! This week Class 3 have investigated the wing spans of some of the largest predatory birds in the world. We used maths to calculate the span of a single wing. then we measured and drew it life-size! After that, we used natural objects from the environment, such as leaves and twings, to create texture in the paint and represent feathers. We next plan to use editing software to create individual pieces of art work. Watch this space.
Happy New Year and welcome back! The best thing about being back is definitely our weekly recorder lessons with Mrs Maitland on a Friday! The children's recorder skills have really come on in such a short amount of time. Here are a few videos on their practice.
