What we are learning about – Extreme Explorers!

This term we will be turning into explorers for an exciting Geography based unit: ‘Extreme Explorers’. We will learn about different explorers from around the world and what they have achieved. We will gain an insight into mapping and orienteering skills by taking part in various outdoor activities, such as, creating our own shelters and cooking soup outdoors! Below are some links that might be useful to support your learning at home.

You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

Stop Motion Animation

Year 3 have been animators this week! They planned their animations carefully on a storyboard and then created characters and models out of plasticine and playdough. They had to show resilience and teamwork when creating the animations, just like the makers of films such as, Wallace & Gromit and Early Man. Each movement had to be very slow and precise - the children had to be very patient!


Below are photographs of the planning process and the animations by 3 Rennie Mackintosh. You can have a go at making your own animation at home by downloading the app on your iPad - "Stop Motion Studio"
