They chalked some lovely rainbows onto black card and finger painted a rainbow picture. They played parachute games with a rainbow coloured parachute, did some messy colour mixing, played in some sparkly water and even had time to make a lovely rainbow cake. What a busy morning!

Year 3 Rainforests

What a fantastic first week to our new topic – Rainforests. The children have activated their prior knowledge, asked lots of interesting questions and had time on the chrome books to research. We have ended the week with a calming art session. With rainforest sounds playing in the background to create a calming environment, the children were able to work on their shading by drawing a selection of beautiful rainforest frogs. Year 3 are proving to be superb artists! Ardderchog!
