Important Dates

Autumn 1 – Extreme Earth!

In the beginning half term of Autumn, the children decided to focus on Extreme Earth!  A project all about the natural disasters that happen all over the world. We researched about tornadoes, did sketches and paintings of volcanoes and even recorded our own weather reports using Green Screen technology! Diolch to all the parents who came to our showcase on Thursday 25th October, we hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did. If you couldn’t make it, we hope you enjoyed watching on Seesaw!

Autumn 2 – Lights, Camera, Action!

For the second half of the Autumn term, the children decided they wanted to delve into the world of television and film. We looked at different stimuli like The Grinch and Lighthouse to start thinking about characters feelings, questions to ask them, taking on roles of characters and eventually looking at story innovation. We looked at some of the artwork of Andy Warhol and imitated this as well as trying to learn choreography from famous dances! On Wednesday the 13th of December, we went to the Riverfront cinema to watch the film Smallfoot – we absolutely loved it! Click this to see everything we did on our Project Web.

Spring 1 – Is Magic Real?

For the start of the Spring term, we began thinking of questions we would like answered to kick off our new project. We voted and the year group decided on ‘Is Magic Real?’, each class then went away and decided what they wanted to learn about. Wow, we had some amazing ideas! 3ED decided to base their project around Harry Potter, click to see the Project Web. 3KF decided to base their project around Superheroes, click to see the Project Web. 3SH decided to base their project around Magic Tricks and Harry Potter, click to see the Project Web

 

Spring 2 – Who were the Romans?

For the remainder of the Spring term, Year 3 focused on ‘Who were the Romans?’. We learnt so much about who the Romans were, where they invaded, how they lived and we especially loved learning all about the Roman army! Click here to see the Project Web. We also really enjoyed visiting the Roman museum and barracks in Caerleon. Check out the pictures below to see what we’ve been up to during this project.

 

Summer 1 – What is Above Us?

We really kicked off our last term with a BANG by launching our new project – What is Above Us? We wanted to learn all about Space and this project really captured our imagination. We learnt all about the planets, constellations, galaxies and loads more. Check out the pictures below and our Project Web to find out more.
