Year 3 D&T (3-D towns)

dt-structures1 dt-structures2 dt-structures3 dt-structures4

Year 3 have been constructing ‘3-D towns’ in D&T. They have also looked at ‘familiar settings’ in English as well as learning about the geographical features of the UK in Geography.

Pupils decided between surburbun and urban towns by using their own familiarity and knowledge of their neighbourhood.

First, they planned the layout of their town by adding roads. Then they made 3-D buildings by folding nets and decorated them.

On Wednesday 11th May, Year Three went to the William Morris Gallery to learn about the artist himself. they learnt about how nature inspired him to create such beautiful art that could be marvelled at from your very own sofa!

The children had a session where they created art themselves by learning about repeating patterns, motif and block printing.

World of Ancient Egyptians!

Recently Year Three went to The British Museum to look at the wonderful artefacts that still remain from the time of the Ancient Egyptians. It was really fascinating because we learnt so much about their customs and what they believed in. We also took along our sketch books so we were able to not only identify the artefacts but draw some as well. It made for a very colourful portfolio!
