Sculpture Week – Rainforest Animals
In our topic lessons we have been exploring about which animals live in the Amazon Rainforest. We sketched a variety of different animals, practicing our sketching techniques. Once we had decided on our chosen animal we would like to make we sketched a larger more detail version. We used clay and molded it into the animal shape using a variety of techniques. We finished by painting them and I’m sure you will agree they look like the real thing!
Year 3 Were Mummified!
Children in year 3 visited the Oriental Museum in Durham on 14th December. They travelled back in time to the land of the Pharaohs to experience what life was like thousands of years ago. Children studied the significance of mummies and mummification and were amazed when they came face to face with a 3,000 year old mummy. The class particularly enjoyed mummifying Eden and sending him to the afterlife! (Don’t worry Eden was not harmed in this activity). The class independently explored the galleries, handled collections and came to their own conclusions of life and death in Ancient Egypt.
