In English children have been learning how to write news reports. As a stimulus for writing they played a match of dodgeball game and successfully reported the outcome of the game. The other opportunity for writing was a “crime” that children had to investigate and report. They identified that the Iron Man has broken into year 3 classroom and left footprints and pieces of chewed metal objects in the reading corner.

In Spring Term Year 3 children became artists creating clay models of Hemel Hempstead Old Town buildings. This theme has been linked to our local history of Hemel Hempstead. Children have learnt about changes over the time and where they can be seen. One of the greatest sources of history of out town is the Old Town. As a progression in their artistic skills, children first designed their favourite houses by drawings them. Then they used clay as media to replicate the building of their choice. As mini clay models has dried, children decorated them by painting. The effort, hard work and creativity has been paid and children created absolutely brilliant models. All young artists of Year 3 can be proud of their work!
