Year 3 were very lucky to have special visitors today from The Gordon Craig Theatre Company. We learnt about Shakespeare and took part in 'A Midsummer's Night Dream' mini production.
On 3rd May, Year 3 visited the Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green to experience his sculpture garden and learn about the production of his vast sculptures. The children were encouraged to touch the artwork and had the opportunity to sketch his sculptures as well as asking many, many questions of our expert guides Meg and Carol. The children had an amazing day with many gasps of wonder throughout. We highly recommend the visit to all families of the Beech Hyde community.
Year 3 joined Year 1 for a special RE and art day.
In the morning we had special visitors from St. Helen's church to tell us more about the Easter story and answer some rather challenging questions Year 3 had!
Then we took part in a range of art activities linked to key elements of the Easter story and Christian symbolism.
ALIENS HAVE LANDED!
Year 3 have made their own Aliens as part of our English topic. We have already used them to inspire a play script between two aliens and they are helping us to write in the third person. Next time, we are planning to write a science fiction story!
In Computing we are using iPads to film dance sequences. We have taken long and mid-range shots, now we are trying to take close up footage of the action.
