Year 3 have been learning all about the prehistoric monument Stonehenge. As part of our art lessons, we decided to recreate Stonehenge in our art work. First, we practiced sketching Stonehenge using shade and tone. For our final piece, we created a sky background with a silhouette of Stonehenge on top. For the sky background, we used pastels in different shades of blue or orange and and blended the colors with our fingers. Don’t they look fantastic!
Yesterday afternoon, Y3 were having lots of fun experimenting with different types of rocks. We tested the rocks in several ways to find out more about their hardness, permeability and density. Before the experiment, we made predictions about which rocks would float (low density) and which would sink (high density.)
Mrs Jepson is calling all our athletes to get involved in this virtual competition. If you do take part then please let Mrs Jepson know through Class Dojo.
