My colourful world

 In Year three, we are starting with our theme of ‘My Colourful World’, starting with the book – ‘The day the crayons quit’ by Oliver Jeffers. Over this half term we will be also looking at different types of writing, colourful art, clay sculpture, place value in Maths (as well as addition and subtraction), magnets and forces in Science, researching and finding different places in the world in geography and some baking!

We have created some new colourful, clay pots for the crayons to live in, we hope they like them. 

The children have created some stamps that could have been on the letters that Michael sent from his adventures in the book 'Dear Teacher'.

The children have been researching the artist Wassily Kandinsky, they have created art in his style, with a twist. Instead of paint they have used tissue paper. 

The children have enjoyed the book 'the day the crayons came home'. They have looked at the new home that Duncan created for them and discussed what he has done to make each crayon happy. After this the children designed, created, and then evaluated their own homes for their crayons. What do you think?

The children have really enjoyed learning about magnets and forces this week. They have been investigating and doing experiments to find out about them. Here are some photos of the children creating some magnet art!
