Year 3 News of The Week
Year 3 have had a busy start back this half-term. Oak class have thoroughly enjoyed their first forest school morning and Elm are eagerly awaiting theirs next week. Photos to follow (we don’t want to spoil anything for Elm!).
In Design and Technology, we are progressing with our textile unit and have practised running stitch and applying this stitch with appliqué. We have needed to use a lot of perseverance and resilience. However, we can ourselves improving with each session!
In music, as a part of our Telling Tales topic, we have learnt that a ballet tells a story through music and dance but doesn’t use words. We have begun to explore Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite which is a ballet based on a folk tale. We listened to the Finale where the frozen, stone garden thaws and comes back to life when good overcomes evil. We drew our responses to the music.
