Cartoon Workshop Pete Mckee

Pete McKee's Cartoon Workshop for Beginners!

As many of you may now have kids at home for the time being, Pete will be posting cartoon workshop lessons every Wednesday starting tomorrow, for the next few weeks. As he has done similar workshops before, which have always been well-received, we thought this would be a nice way to offer children, and adults too, something fun and creative to help break up the day, keeping young minds active in addition to their school work. Anyone can take part in these videos which will be uploaded to the Pete McKee YouTube channel. All you’ll need is a few pieces of paper, or whatever’s lying around, card, scrap paper etc., and some pencils or pens. The videos will be posted at 12pm tomorrow for whoever is interested!
Here is the link to our YouTube channel:

How to use your 200 square


·        Choose a number. Learn which numbers are around it.

            Add and subtract numbers from it – Do the tens first, then the ones.


·         Find patterns in the way the numbers are set out and write them down.

·         Count around 100 – forwards and backwards. Can you count in 1s, 2s, 5s or 10s?

·         Cover the multiples of 2, 3, 5 and 10 etc (one multiple at a time).

Use the patterns to predict which numbers will be in the sequence.


Make it

·         Draw pieces of the 100 square on the blank side with only some of the numbers fille




    Think about the numbers and the patterns to fill in the empty spaces.

Stone Age Exploration

We followed in the footsteps of Stone Age people when we hunted and gathered our food, built shelters and discovered how to make fire. We became archaeologists when we looked at evidence of Stone Age life through cave paintings. We really got to grips with the understanding of what evidence is, by solving an artefact mystery. 

We also practised our sewing skillls by embellishing pieces of fabric. These were then sewn together to make  fashionable Stone Age outfits!

Trip to Cresswell Crags

Botanical Garden Trip

Last half term, we took the Y3 children to the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield. They had the chance to see some amazing plants that enabled them to design fantastical plants of their own.

They then wrote letters to ‘Mrs Berry’, who manages a seed production factory, to persuade her to manufacture seeds which would grow into the plant they designed.

In science, we grew a range of seeds, investigated what plants need in order to survive and studied the functions of different parts of a plant.

Studying artists who loved to paint flowers, such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Vincent Van Gogh and Marianne North, allowed the children to work in the style of a famous artist. The pictures show the children developing a painting by following colour schemes and shapes, then creatively expanding them.
