We have had a fun and busy start to our year. We began the journey with some team building and the children showed great teamwork to build the tallest tower using their shoes and ordering themselves based on different characteristics in silence before demonstrating their creativity by making a portrait of Mrs Riccobena or Mr Bamford using found resources. The results were an uncanny resemblance!
We’ve kicked off lots of our learning topics this year such as exploring rocks in science, and trying to explain why the crayons have quit in English. Our art has begun by learning about Spanish artists Joan Miro and Pablo Picasso. The former, a surrealist painter, whose style we copied to create striking sketch book covers. The latter, a cubist artist, whose style we have pinched to create self-portraits for one of our displays.
Well done on a great first full week year 3!
