Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Designers and Rats!

Year 3 have started this new term of home leaning by beginning an exciting new story, "I Was A Rat!" by Philip Pullman. It tells the story of a young boy who arrives on the doorstep of an old couple and insists he used to be a rat. His gullible and trusting nature have so far got him into some tricky situations.

                  

In English we have been writing character descriptions, writing in role and even making predictions of what we think will happen next.

      

 

In topic we have been exploring the features of jewellery from the Greek and Roman eras and the more recent styles worn in the 1980s. We  planned the style of jewellery we would like to make taking into account the materials we would have access to.

We discussed ways to reproduce the shape of the items and how we could achieve an opulent effect by using foil and sweet wrappers, for example. Finally, we made our own jewellery using these different materials. We hope you like our creations.

                                                  

We are looking forward to putting our design skills to the test next week when we re-style old T-shirts.
