The Colours Of Queen’s Hill Year 3

The whole school has been working on our self portraits this week, inspired by the work of Angelica Dass and her Humanae project. Here are are some year 3 children completing some of their work!

Colours of Queen’s Hill

Our amazing teaching team have been painting self-portraits after school today for our Colours of Queen’s Hill art project. They’ll be going on display in the main entrance next week.

The Colours of Queen’s Hill is a wonderful art project for our whole-school community, where everyone will be creating their own self-portrait to celebrate individuality and diversity, inspired by the work of artist Angélica Dass.

Year 3 Wraps

Year 3 designed, made and evaluated their own wraps. Here is what they had to say:

“Putting all of the ingredients down the middle of the wrap was fun!”

“Cutting the ingredients into smaller pieces was fun!”

“Tasting the wrap was delicious!”

“Folding the wrap up was tricky, but we persevered and did it!”

Hedgehog Music Performance

This morning, Hedgehog class performed their ‘lean on me’ song to CNS high as part of the outreach project.

The Year 12 students then joined in with their instruments for the verses. It was great to see everyone making music together!

We look forward to seeing how our partnership can develop next academic year.

Year 3 Science

Year 3 dissected flowers today to see the different parts. They then made and labeled their own versions and explored the role of each part.

Maths in Year 3

Year 3 investigated polygons today and saw what shapes they could make from putting different ones together.

Then they moved onto marking the vertices on isometric paper!

Boom Whacker Workshop

Hedgehog class enjoyed a Boom Whacker workshop today courtesy of CNS high school.

Miss Peek will be delivering these sessions across the school during the next academic year.

They were able to play different rhythms and chords and even accompany the song ‘Lean on me.’

French Fruit Salad in Year 3

Year 3 began this term’s French topic on food today using Languagenut to learn the names of fabulous fruits. They extended their language learning to create colourful fruit bowls which they labelled in French! Bien fait tout le monde (well done everyone)!

Year 3 Sculpture

Year 3 had fun making these bowls inspired by Kandinsky. They used paper mache and thought carefully about how their designs could be inspired by him.
