Year 3 have been hand sewing in their Design and Technology lessons this week. Maybach and Crowther have designed and made money containers using coloured felt fabric. They have been learning three new stitches; the running stitch, back stitch and over stitch.
Year 3 are participating in a virtual pantomime in order to gain our Arts Award - Discover. Arts Awards are a range of unique qualifications that support anyone aged up to 25 to grow as an artist and arts leaders. Discover is the first award and is all about children discovering the arts.
Last Wednesday, we spent the whole day learning about the arts. We realised that art comes in many forms and studied some different forms including composing, drawing, poetry and ballet. We spent some time learning about the famous composer Piotr Tchaikovsky and watched a small part of The Nutcracker.
The final steps in gaining our award will be to watch and participate in ‘Rapunzel the Lockdown Pantomime’ on Wednesday 16th December. To familiarise ourselves with this art form, we studied the history of pantomimes as well as the story of Rapunzel.
