Welcome back to 3R after a wonderful Christmas break.
Our theme this half term has a STEAM focus:
May The Force Be With You!
We will be learning about the forces around us using our skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths.
We have made a great start by exploring how toys move with different forces, painting using force and investigating which material is best for a toy car to travel on.
Take a look at some of the things we’ve been up to…
Last half term we learnt about light. At Christmas, we made a shadow puppet play of the Nativity.
Before Christmas, we has a Design and Technology Week. In Year Three, we learnt how to sew using different stitches on Binka. We then made stitched pictures based on Vincent van Gough’s Starry Night for our calendars.
In the Autumn term our theme was
Stone Age to Bronze Age.
We developed our skills as Historians to find out how people lived in pre-historical times.

Last week we had a visitor from the Ruskin Collection at Lancaster University. She taught us about Ruskin’s life as an artist and showed us how to notice the world around us by drawing. We made sketchbooks, which we filled with drawings of interesting natural objects. She showed us how to make imprints of leaves in clay, so we could notice the shapes and textures.
