  • Sunshine and Shadows

    Published 29/03/23

    What a fabulous final two weeks! Year three have been busy immersing themselves in Henri Rousseau's painting, Surprise! as part of Arts Week. We had fun exploring the painting in depth and used our newly developed printing skills to create a beautiful mural. This week we took advantage of the glorious sunshine to create shadows, a long awaited lesson, which we all enjoyed thoroughly. The children were able to notice patterns in how the shadows changed throughout the day - making links with their maths learning of measurement. Continuing with our study on light and shadows, we created some wonderful shadow puppet theatres which we used to perform some very expressive scenes from Matilda!

    Wishing you all a marvellous break and look forward to seeing you all again in the summer term.

  • Richmond Museum

    Published 14/03/23

    Year 3 have been learning more about the history of our local area this week whilst on a visit to Richmond Museum. We learnt all about how Victorians did their laundry (it took 6 days!). Did you know that all of Queen Victoria's laundry was sent to Richmond to be washed? We looked at how Richmond changed from the Tudor times and how the coming of the railways in Victorian times made the area a much busier place. We also had fun playing with Victorian toys and pretending to be in a Victorian school.
