Finally the sun came out

Finally the sun stayed out long enough for us to explore how the sun creates shadows.  Year 3 were challenged to make a variety of shadows tall, thin, big and small. They all worked really hard and came up with some amazing ideas. We pose the question:


What happens to our shadow when we face the sun?

Does our shadow when we turn away from the sun?

Diorama Drama

After experimenting with year 4’s dioramas to create stop frame animations we began to look at the geography of India and how we could incorporate it in to our own versions. Take a look at what we have created so far.



Bollywood comes to Bearwood

Year 3 had a fantastic afternoon trying on different traditional outfits as part of our Bollywood project.  We created a catwalk and everyone got involved. Click on a link below to see the video footage.

Before Man

Year 3 have been learning how to sketch over the last couple of weeks.  They have had a visit from a local Artist called Trish she has been coming into school to help us make and deisgn our own pop up book.  The children have been using their skills to sketch the Dinosaur that they have been writing about in English. Here are a few examples of the work that they produced. Well done Year 3.
