This week was art week! We have been learning a new skill in Year 3 – tie dying. We learned what tie dying is and researched what it looks like when completed. We then experimented with creating different patterns on our pieces of fabric and mixing colours with our fabric paints! While these were drying, we sketched our hand and then planned out some pattern designs. We then looked at what materials we could use to create these patterns, and once our fabric was dry, we painted our hand prints onto our fabric and decorated them with a range of materials.
We had lots of fun and are really pleased with our art and design work.
As part of our World War II studies, the children found Warrington Library’s Holocaust Memorial Exhibition, titled No Child’s Play: Children in the Holocaust, very interesting today.
The children had a fun filled day of scientific experiments and discovery. Our thanks go to Adrian Bowden from ‘Travelling Science’ and Mrs Yates for organising the day for us. We loved every minute and learned such a lot.
