As part of our learning on the Ancient Greeks we designed our own mythical creature. We thought about what it might look like, what characteristics it would have and integrated this mythical creature into our own Greek myth. The children then used clay to model and bring their design to life.
Events at School
Sports day 2019
Sports day 2019! We had a fantastic morning out on the field with our class friends, staff and families. It was lovely to see everyone trying their best and cheering on their friends. We took part in running races, skipping, sack and egg and spoon races. We finished off with a parent race which was fun to watch!
As part of our learning on plants we went on a trip to Tatton Park. We took part in the ‘Green Fingers’ experience. As part of our day we potted plants, made a biodegradable plant pot out of newspaper, made a bug hotel and explored Tatton Park’s vast grounds in search of different plants, tress and minibeasts.
During art week
During art week, year 3 studied the artists Frederick Varley and Alexander Nepote. They had a go at observational drawing using pencil and pencil crayons, then they created their own ideas for weather pictures using pencil crayons. Finally, the children created their own artwork on canvas’ using acrylic paint.
Our Trip to Bolton Museum
On Friday 3rd May Year 4 went to Bolton Museum for a trip. We had been learning all about the Egyptians and they had a fantastic collection of artefacts including a mummified body, animals from the River Nile and the Pyramids.
We spent the day looking around Bolton’s Egypt and enjoyed seeing real things from Egypt.
Lexi said “I did enjoy the morning because we were looking around the museum and we learnt all about the Egyptians and Rob told us more about the Egyptians that we didn’t know about.”
Summer said “I liked looking at all the artefacts that were dug up from history.”
