Welcome to Year 3
D&T project visit to Carlton Academy
Year 3s have spent an exciting few weeks exploring healthy lifestyles, including a food tasting session, where many of our pupils tried and enjoyed a new salad item. This hard work culminated in a trip to Carlton Academy where we were lucky enough to prepare our own salads in a Food Technology room, with full use of cookery equipment. A special thanks to Mrs Williams who helped us endlessly with these visits!
Ancient Egyptian Day
The children had a fascinating Ancient Egyptian day where children dressed up in their finest Egyptian clothing. We discovered the mysteries of an Ancient Egyptian burial ceremony by:
- Re-creating the scents and aromas of Ancient Egypt
- Investigating and handling artefacts used in mummification
- Discovering the clothing and makeup of an Egyptian princess
- Dressing up and taking part in a stunning and atmospheric ‘burial ceremony’ where the story unfolds through the use of costume, narration, mime, music, dance and drama.
Fruit Faces inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo
The year three children have developed their portrait work by looking at the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo's portraits, who used fruits, vegetables and flowers to create faces. They have worked in groups to create their own portraits.
Year 3 Portraits
Children in Year 3 have been working hard on creating a self portrait. The children have developed their sketching skills and use of tone to produce some masterpieces. Well done.
WHAT A GREAT START TO LIFE AT WESTDALE JUNIORS!
