3D Map Making in Art
Today (Fri 22nd November) we have been making 3D maps as part of our Art lesson. We have just started studying Geography this week and we are focussing on the UK and its counties. Our 3D maps are of Norfolk and some of the key landmarks and things to see and do in the county. We started by painting small white areas on our maps where landmarks are located, then we drew a picture that represents the landmark well and then we cut around most of it so we can stand it up.
Pictures of finished work coming soon...
Welcome to Class 3!
Our classroom is in the purple mobile at the top of the slope. Miss Hewitt is our teacher and Mrs Woodards and Miss Gower are our fabulous Teaching Assistants. In Key stage 2 we study Maths, English, Science - including Chemistry and Biology, RE, Art, Design & Technology, ICT, PE and Games, PSHE, History, Geography, Music and French.
We have started this term with a Design & Technology project all about Pneumatics. We based our project around Roald Dahl's book George's Marvellous Medicine and we have designed and made George's House with George's Grandma exploding out of the roof!
We have 25 in our class and it is a mixture of Year 3, 4 and 5. We are all getting to know each other well through lots of fun activities and games. Miss Hewitt has special stars on the wall which we can earn by doing great things and we get to wear them on a lanyard for the rest of the day, so the whole school knows what we've done well at. They range from being helpful, kind and funny, to being a super scientist, a sporty star or for wonderful writing, spelling or maths.
We have a lovely reading corner which we like sitting reading in, but we could do with a few more cushions if anyone has any spare. We have a cooker in our room which we are hoping to use this year and we go outside most days and take part in the Golden Mile - running or walking for 10 minutes.
We are a great class and we love visitors, so please let us know if you would like to come in or join in one of our curiosity cafes....coming soon!
