We all enjoyed our MMA taster session. It was really informative, lots fun and very energetic!
Celebration of Our Learning (Spring 1)
We invited our families into school to watch us perform Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. We sang in front of the whole school with confidence and lots of expression! Then, our parents were invited to our classrooms to look at the fantastic moving books we had made in DT and we shared our art sketch books too. It was wonderful to have so many our grown-ups in school!
World Book Day
We had a wonderful time celebrating world book day. We had a reading café, learnt a song about World Book Day, created a character and developed a spoken story based on this character. Our characters were sharks and we learnt how to draw them from a tutorial with Rob Biddulph. We then drew these characters in a story wheel and sat with our friends to tell them our stories. There really were some wonderful illustrations and story wheels created!
Burnley Youth Theatre
Both classes visited Burnley Youth Theatre to meet face to face with their linking class. 3J met the children and staff from Euxton Primary School in April and 3B met the children and staff from Brookside Primary School in May. The day was spent getting to know our new friends and playing lots of fun games together. We also took part in some interesting drama activities that allowed us the opportunity to investigate our similarities and differences. We can’t wait for our new friends to visit us in school.
School Linking Day – Brookside Primary
Our friends from Brookside came to spend the day with us in school. The aim of this day was to continue to get to know people and learn to work collaboratively with others. We continued to focus on our similarities and differences. Our friends from Brookside enjoyed their day here and they loved playing on our outdoor gym equipment. At the end of the day both schools performed a poem called Together by Matt Goodfellow. Mrs Taylor watched our performance and was amazed at how well we did in just one day!
Edward Foster Art
Last week, Edward Foster came to visit Year 3. Edward is a self-taught artist from the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire. He works from his studio and the majority of his artwork is inspired by nature. Edward taught us many skills and techniques. We learned how to draw toucans, hummingbirds, badgers and leaves. We had a fantastic day and produced some wonderful pieces of art.
