There are several learning links on this page if you are looking for homework help or online activities. We have lots of exciting learning to look forward to so keep checking back on the blog to find out what we are up to in Year 3.

The Year 3 children have been exploring and developing their creative skills using a range of painting and drawing techniques. They have recreated animal drawings using the style of cave artists. We used pencils, charcoals, ink and natural materials to create colour pigments and textured paintings throughout the term.

The children applied their skills to create a final piece applying all their learnt techniques. We hope you enjoy a sample of the work they have created. Well done to all the children for their lovely creative cave paintings.


Creating Dream Jars and writing an adapted extract from the BFG

Over the past few weeks the Year 3 children have created their own Dream Jars, inspired by the BFG. The children experienced a range of materials to stimulate their senses and used their positive feeling influences to decide what ingredients were needed to make a phizzwizard (positive dream).  The children collaborated and created a recipe of positive ideas that their dream jar should contain.

With their fantastic ideas and dream jars as inspiration, the children independently wrote their adapted version of the extract from the BFG where Sophie and the BFG created a dream for the Queen. This time, they made it a positive dream. A PHIZZWIZARD! The children worked hard to use creative writing ideas and to include the correct grammar and punctuation we have been practising in Year 3.

We have made their creative extract into a mini story booklet with a front cover and a blurb which they are excited to take home to share with their family.
