Welcome to Year 3, the first year of Juniors.
Year 3 Warhol is an exciting year for children. It is also the first year of Key Stage 2. Currently we are studying The Stone Age, this has given us a whole host of exciting opportunities-we have been learning about the habitats, weapons, activities and food at this point in history. This topic goes hand in hand with drama too and this lends us a great opportunity to explore role play and also different literature based around the Stone Age. Our Classroom is full of wonderful art displays based around our topic-we have silhouette pictures of Stonehenge and also cave paintings. Each table is named after an area of our topic and talking partners are also given topic based names.
Year 3 are named after Warhol ( Andy Warhol) the artist. We have also been studying him and have found him to be a real inspiration in the way he used colour and block painting to create artistic works of art.
This year we are working with Year 4 to create a nativity play to be performed in the village church. This is a very special evening where the church is in candle light and we celebrate the start of Christmas with music, drama and carol singing. A night not to be missed!
Horsmonden itself plays a part in our learning too, with many activities going on within in the village that we can incorporate into our learning. Recently there was the Scarecrow Festival and Warhol interviewed and wrote a newspaper article about the Scarecrow that was stolen-we also have some great journalists who interviewed the owner of the Scarecrow.
The year's plan can be found here.
