Year 3 - Mexico
Welcome to Mexico class. Mrs Taylor is our teacher. Mrs Wilson and Miss Maxam are our teaching assistants.
This week the children have visited the Sainsbury Centre as part of their topic work on Spain.We are exploring Spanish artists and work by Pablo Picasso and Eduardo Chillida.
The children spent time thinking about shapes and spaces in artworks in the gallery and the building itself, and worked collaboratively to produce their very own Eduard Chillida inspired piece of work!
They then spent time exploring the collection and making observational sketches in their sketch books.Everyone liked the Picasso sketch of a woman combing her hair.
We all had a lovely day and the gallery staff commented on how well behaved the children were!
We have worked very hard on our assembly, putting together a presentation of the work of which we are most proud.There was a lot to choose from over a busy Autumn Term, but we decided on:
Greek pots and evidence, myths, poems, Gods and Goddesses.
We also looked at column addition, mindlfulness and yoga.
Everyone spoke well and presented their work with pride.Our technical directors, Jacob and Hartley, did a fantastic job showing images on Apple TV.
Well done, everyone!
Mexico class had lots of fun spending the night away from home at our School Sleepover.
After handing in sponsorship forms, the children set up their beds in allocated ‘dorms’ and said goodbye to their grow ups.
A delicious meal was prepared by our kitchen staff (thank you!) and served by the adults.Then there was lots of fun playing our ‘Pudsey Beetle Run’ game which created lots of excitement.
After this the children had hot chocolate, a Pudsey biscuit and settled down to watch some Children In Need.
Then it was time to clean teeth, have a story and get cosy into bed.
Everyone was well behaved and slept.
In the morning there was toast and juice before parents came to collect.
Lots of fun was had by all, although the Year 3 class looked a little sleepy on Monday morning!
