Welcome to Year 3's Class Page
Our topic this half term is 'There's no place like home'. it is based on the story 'The Wizard of Oz' because we are learning about adventure stories. We used Espresso Coding to make short animations and scenes from the film. A couple examples from both classes can be watched below.

Year 3 Trip to the World Museum and the Walker Art Gallery
On the 7th November, Year 3 took a trip to the World Museum and the Walker Art Gallery as part of the topic of Ancient Egyptians and famous artists.
At the World Museum, we had a talk with an Ancient Egyptian expert and we explored some artefacts which dated back to the Ancient Egyptian times!
We got to touch the artefacts but were told to be very careful because some of them were thousands of years old! We looked at mummifying materials, hieroglyphics and decorations that the Ancient Egyptians used.
In the Walker Art Gallery, we were taken on a tour of all the rooms, exploring different artist’s paintings, drawings and sculptures.
Our tour guide gave us lots of fun drawing activities which included sketching a sculpture and drawing blind. We were able to carry on looking around after our tour at some of the amazing artwork that had been produced by artists from all over the world at different times in our history.
