Year 3 enjoyed using paint and cotton buds to create a colour wheel using the pointillism technique. Seurat didn’t mix colours, he used dots of different colours which our eyes merge together. This is called optical mixing.
The children continue to enjoy French lessons this term. They have been learning how to say their date of birth, why not challenge them to tell you!
The children have been learning about the work of Georges Seurat who used a technique called pointillism to paint pictures. This week we used a pointillism graphics package to paint digital pictures. They turned out great!
This term we will be learning to programme in Scratch. If the children would like to practise at home, it can be downloaded for free at scratch.mit.edu.
Please could the children bring an old, large T shirt or shirt to protect their uniform when we do our Art and D & T lessons.
Year 3 had a wonderful visit to church to view a historical display about Wigan’s mining heritage. They listened to an interesting talk and had the opportunity to view some artefacts. At the end they were amazed to meet Tia Maria, a pit pony. The children really enjoyed it and their behaviour was fantastic, both at the church and walking in the rain! I was very proud of them.
Thank you for your support in sending in the jam jars. The children really enjoyed decorating their jars and writing about their amazing dreams.
