  • Year 3 Art Sculptures

    Art in Year 3


    This summer, Year 3 has been studying structures. From images of The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, we looked at positive and negative space.  Using precise measurements and cutting skills, we created these superb abstract sculptures.

    “We had to fold each strip of paper to make each section of the sculpture” Ava

    “The whole thing took ages because you had to cut out and put the sculpture together really accurately” Mia

    “Max helped me stick the first piece” Tiam

    “You can see right through the sculpture and fit your hand right inside” Shea

    “Making perfect squares was tricky because you had to fold a flap so the each part would stick together” Mollie

    There was some magic teamwork and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the art experience.  I am sure the sculptures will all take pride of place at home.

    A Trip Out with Year 3

    Chester Zoo

    On Thursday 4th July, Year 3 took a day off school and visited Chester Zoo.  This tied in nicely with some of the creatures we have encountered through our core book – Jumanji and our Geography topic about Biomes.

    “The Indian Elephants were having a bath because the weather was so hot.  They took water through their trunk and squirted it over their backs” Max

    “The bat cave was dark and it stunk.  Fruit bats were hanging above out heads while short tailed bats flew right past us.” Brooke

    “When we visited the lions, the male lion was right in front of us, asleep in the shade of a tree.” Erin

    “The rhino had been eating lots of food because there was poo all over the place.  It was massive” Charlie

    “There were really small animals too.  The leaf cutter ants carried food to their formicary in long lines” Annie

    “The python was huge.  Their mouth parts come apart so they can swallow large prey.  In the wild, they only eat once or twice a year” Maisy

    “Did you know giraffes can grow to over 5 metres tall.  Their markings are different depending on where in Africa they live” Ava

    “The orangutan was feeling very lazy.  One woke up, scratched its bum, sniffed it and went back to sleep again” Harley

    “I had the world’s biggest ice cream.  It was as big as my head.  And I ate it all” Jasmine

    On the way back, some of us slept while some chatted about what a great day they’d had. Thank you to all the parents who came along to help.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
