Getting Handy in Year 3!

Friday 29th September | 2 comments

The children had full control in English this week. Us teachers were jam sandwich maker robots and we could only listen to the instructions the children gave us. We had to do what we were told! This exercise helped the children with their explanation writing this week. It made the children realise that when explaining how something works every little step needs to be thought about logically. Finally this week, the children have written some amazing explanations as to how their own inventions work. All writing included a range of different time connectives and some subordinating conjunctions. Everyone in year 3 should be proud of their writing achievements.

The children have been really handy this week, especially in art as they have created their very own hand cave paintings. To give their art work different textures some children used paint to create their work whilst others used wax crayons.  We based our art work on the famous hand cave paintings that were created 17,000 years ago in Lascaux Cave in Southern France. The children were surprised to hear that the cave was discovered by accident by four teenage boys at the start of the Second World War. 

Congratulations to the children who received a special mention this week in assembly!

We hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
