Faces in places: ART

This morning we ventured outside for some fresh air and enjoyed using giant eyes to find faces in every day objects. We used our imaginations and shared many laughs with each other (especially when making the noises we thought they would make). This was a great way to share love and creativity in our day.

Green Class have had an absolutely fantastic World Book Day! We had a brilliant range of costumes, from the beautiful swan in The Ugly Duckling to a collection of Harry Potters. We have been writing book reviews, illustrating a poem and rehearsing our class poem.

Year 3 had an exciting day making volcanoes to end our topic of Tremors. The children worked hard in pairs to make their paper mache volcanoes. They carefully measured their acid (vinegar) and alkali (bicarbonate of soda) ready to mix together to make their chemical reactions to represent the eruptions. We discussed how this reaction was like a pyroclastic flow from a volcano.

STEM Day - How sturdy is your house?

The children were challenged to build an earthquake proof structure. In groups they designed a structure using their newly learnt knowledge of cross-bracing and base isolation. Then we made and tested our structures to see who could withstand a 10 second earthquake.

We have come to an end of our Graffiti topic! The children have thoroughly enjoyed their learning over this term. We explored our surroundings searching for areas in Minster that were appropriate for graffiti and those that were not. We discussed lots of positives and negatives over the term. From our trip around the village we used pictures to create backgrounds for our graffiti art to be displayed on.
