Y3’s artwork, inspired by an influential ceramic artist called Clarice Cliff, is on display on the KS2 corridor if you have a chance to check it out. They have done a fantastic job, I am very proud of everyone. Many thanks to Miss Pardey for her support with this topic.
In Y3 we have been exploring how water moves through a plant. Lots of us thought that the roots sucked in the water but now we know that the water moves up the plant using a process called capillary action. The children particularly enjoyed using the pipettes to put the drops of food dye into the water. Well done Year 3, by the end of the lesson the only person who accidentally dripped dye onto the carpet was me!
In Y3 we have been exploring equivalent fractions by making our own out of strips of paper. Fractions can be fun!
Our broad beans are growing well and we have discovered that the seed swelled and cracked because it had absorbed water. Then a small root appeared which grew longer with mini roots growing off it. After that, the stem started to grow. We have repotted the seed into compost and will continue to watch it grow.
Y3 have been exploring their own self portraits in the style of Sandra Silberzweig and learning to use pastels.
Y3 have been paractising their painting skills in Art by creating their own Clarice Cliff inspired plate. They have done a fabulous job!
