Welcome to Mars!

We are a Year 3 class taught by Miss Gethings. Keep checking our page to see all the exciting things we have been up to!

Remember: Homework is given out on Wednesdays and is due in the following Monday. We encourage children to read as regularly as possible, and expect their school reading book to be read at least 3 times a week and recorded in their planner. PE days are Tuesday and Friday and children should come into school wearing their PE kits on these days.

Nick Sharratt!

We had a fantastic time meeting the famous illustrator Nick Sharratt! He taught us how to draw some of his characters and answered some of our questions, we learnt so much about him.


Harvest Festival!

On Thursday 8th October Mars class took part in a virtual harvest festival with the Year 2's at Branston Infants. We spoke about what harvest is about, shared some harvest artwork, performed some harvest acrostic poems and finished with some prayers we had written. Take a look at some of our work below. 


Under the Sea Artwork

Our topic this term is Under the Sea. In art we have been learning about primary colours and how we can mix primary colours to create secondary colours. We have also been exploring some other painting techniques.
Here, we created a background using blue paint and mixing it with white to make it lighter as it gets towards the top (top of the ocean). We then left it to try and made a stencil of an under the sea creature to create the silhouette. We drew around the stencil and carefully painted it using black paint. We were very careful around the edges! 

Cairn Cermony

At the start of this term, our Year 3's designed their own rock. We then had a Cairn Cermony with Mrs Shaw and placed down our rocks, whilst looking at all the other rocks put down by our students.
