End of Autumn Term 1!

What a week we have had!

Ending our first term in Year 3 with MAD week has been great fun! The children have been focusing on endangered animals, in Years 3 and 4 we looked at the Giant Panda.

We began our week recapping different sketching techniques to sketch our own Panda faces. We looked at hatching, cross hatching and stippling . We then looked at pressure blending using oil pastels to create a green jungle background.

Next, we took part in some textiles work, learning different sewing techniques including overcast and basting. In pairs with some Year 4 children, they practised on some Binca squares to master the different stitches. The children then designed their own puppets and planned the different felt shapes they would use. We then used these skills to stitch together felt and add features to their own panda puppet.

To end the week, we had House Time focusing on our school mission and how we follow this every day. We discussed St Charles’, who he is and how he became a Saint in the lead up to St Charles’ Feast Day after half term.

We have had a great first term and hope everyone has a relaxing break!
