Year Three Trips
Stepney Park Science and Art Trip
The fantastic early May weather gave Year Three the perfect chance to undertake some Science learning outside as they nipped over to Stepney Park as part of their unit about plants. Nature's great display was also an inspiration for some art work.
River Thames and Tate Gallery Trip
Year Three took full advantage of a break in the unseasonal wintery weather with a trip to the Tate Gallery. To avoid the congested London traffic and packed tube they made the journey home by boat taking advantage of the Tate's Thameside location.
Big Barbican Workshop Trip
Year Three travelled to the Barbican to take part in the Big Barbican Art and DT Workshop combining dance, animation and spoken word The pictures below show the amazing constructions they were inspired to build at the workshop.
Stepney Park Science Trip
Year Three took their Science learning outside with a trip to Stepney Park. The parks play equipment allowed the children to study forces in action looking at how pushes and pulls are used to give motion to some of the parks' play equipment.
St Dunstan's Church Trip
Year Three paid a trip to our local church, St Dunstan's to take part in an art workshop. The old stone building also gave them a perfect chance to place their recent Science learning on rocks into a real context. The pictures show some of Laura's class enjoying the workshop and then hunting for different types of rock around the building.
British Museum Trip - Jun 17
Year Three headed up to central London to visit the British Museum to look at some of the exhibits relating to their topic on Ancient Egypt. Whilst the journey on the tube was hot and stuffy the museum was cooler and as can be seen in the pictures, the children enjoyed interacting with the exhibits.
Thames Boat Trip to the Tate Modern - Mar 17
Year Three had an exciting day with a visit to the Tate Modern to support their recent art work. Rather than travel by tube they children were treated to a boat trip down the Thames allowing them to see the famous buildings of London, supporting their recent Geography topic work on iconic landmarks.
East London Mosque - Nov 16
Our Year Three classes paid a visit to the nearby East London Mosque as part of their RE project on Islam and the local community. The pictures below show 3R finding out about some of the practices in the mosque.
Autumn Walk Artwork - Nov 16
Inspired by the natural resources on their Autumn Walk, Laura's class worked on art compositions and patterns. Their fantastic designs can be seen in the pictures below.
St Dunstan's Church Trip - Oct 16
Both year three classes made trips to St Dunstan's church during the first week of October. The churchyard gave the class a great chance to apply the learning about rocks and stones that had taken place in September back in the classroom.
