We have been particularly enjoying our Art lessons this term in Year 3. We have been inspired by the Autumnal weather and artists and sculptors such as Andy Goldsworthy and Richard Long. So far we have created Mandala patterns, drawn symmetrical leaves and made our own sculptures using natural materials.

We have also been fascinated by some of the changes we have been learning about in History. We are trying to find out how Burpham has changed since 1908 when our school first opened. This has involved taking a historical walk up Burpham Lane and handling artefacts from an Edwardian schoolroom.

Year 3 love learning outdoors, so we had a great time during Lower Key Stage 2's Outdoor Learning Day. We were challenged to be creative with pencils and pastels, we were inspired by a story called Cheeseman and we helped to plant 30 trees around our school grounds. Every child felt so proud with the impact of their work from the day.

 Thursday 19th January was our Stone Age Day! Lots of us got dressed up and we invited Portals to the Past to come in and teach us what life was like in 800 000BC and beyond.  Take a look at the photos below to see what we got up to!
