Welcome to Class 3's page

We all work very hard in Class 3 but we do have lots of fun!

We have enjoyed creating art in the style of two famous artists.

We loved our trip to the beach.

We liked creating these colourful grids.

We are enjoying learning about the Lighthouse Keeper. We have done some graphic art to represent some of the story.

I enjoyed a walk with my family.

I have been busy writing about the cat.

We love learning to use all the different computer programmes we have. We can compose music and  create illustrated stories.


You never know what you'll find in Class 3!

We have created a wonderful display 

 

We have created trees using handprints. We love the colours of autumn.

Guiseppe Arcimboldo was an artist who was born in Italy and liked to create faces out of vegetables and fruit.
