Investigating place names

Today, Class Three continued their history topic on the Anglo-Saxons and Scots. The children had great fun looking at the meaning of place names and their origins and used the atlases to find Anglo-Saxon place names. We looked at the meaning of these place names and them plotted them onto a blank map. Why not ask your child if they can name any of these!

Islamic Inspired Art

Class Three have been learning about Islamic art. We began by looking at the shapes, colours and symmetry in a variety of Islamic tiles and buildings. We then experimented with designing patterns using rulers and lots of precision drawings to create stars. We then looked at using 2D shapes to design our own individual design. The final design was drawn out and coloured using contrasting colours. Here are some of our amazing final products!
