A lovely afternoon creating our own still life compositions, following our learning about Paul Cezanne. The children used different grades of pencils to create lighter areas and shadows. As the pencils were water soluble, (nice science link there!) some of us used damp paintbrushes to blend our shading better.
Awesome mapping skills shown by Year 3 this morning. We started off looking at aerial maps of England, before the children learned how to find towns and cities using coordinates. Super work!
Year 3 finished Africa Day with a wonderful African dance workshop! These children have super rhythm!
Thanks so much to our amazing families who kindly cooked us African food! We just LOVED it!
We loved our music lesson with Mr Larkin this afternoon! “Af-ri-ca (Man-de-la)!”
Wow! We watched the most incredible performance of Chinese music today, performed by a very talented group of Cantonese teenagers. It was awe inspiring, and we were all amazed by the beautiful, powerful sounds made by their traditional instruments.
Great to see children putting their maths into practise today selling cakes and working out change for the NSPCC! Thanks to all of the parents who made cakes, supported the children and to Year 3 pupils for making flapjacks. We’re still counting all the money we made, watch this space!
