I Spy Some Dragon Eyes!

Have a look at the spectacular dragon eyes Onyx Class have created this term! They have worked hard with sketching, planning colours, carving and finally painting their incredible work and are really proud of their final designs.

Stoneage Builders

Last half term, we were looking at the Stoneage and how life changed through the different periods. We looked at how housing changed from caves, to tents made of animal hide to stone houses with straw roofs.

We made our own sculptures of the style of houses of the Neolithic period of the Stoneage. We learnt how to score the pieces of clay and wet it a bit so it stuck together and didn’t fall apart. We used lots of different techniques such as rolling it into a ball, rolling it into a sausage, cutting it and making holes in it and sticking it back together.

Kickstarting the Topic Stone Age Style

This term, we’re heading even further back into the past to explore prehistoric times, particularly surrounding the Stone Age. This morning we braved the chilly conditions to use crayons to create our own colourful cave drawings – We hope you enjoyed viewing the drawings in our Stone Age Gallery this afternoon and if you weren’t able to visit the gallery, you can see some of our fantastic work below:

Shades of History

Wow! What a creative Friday afternoon we’ve had in Year 3! We explored various ways to shade, gradually creating gradients and exploring how to use our pencils accurately before we sketched each other. We practiced using our new shading techniques, while inspired by sketches of Fanny Eaton, a Jamaican-born model from the 1840s.

Team Year 3 were very impressed with our talented classes – We’re looking forward to even more exciting Art projects in future!
