Year 3 Showcase Their Work for Parents and Peers

08 December 2014

Last Friday the Year 3 corridor was buzzing with excitement. The children were full of anticipation as it was the long awaited Dinosaur Showcase Day! Year 3 Leader, Emma Wakelin, tells us more about it.

  • Year 3 at BISS Puxi put on their Dinosaur Showcase for parents

Year 3 students showing their parents what they've been learning this term.

Out came maps and food chains, fossils and 3D clay models as well as buried dinosaur skeletons. There were also tables scattered with colleographs and sketches, mythological stories and published dinosaur fact books.  

Year 3 were biting at the bit to share their exciting experiences from this term's learning journey on "Footprints from the Past".

A warm welcome was offered in every classroom by each and every child. Up and down the corridor they were happily and confidently sharing their achievements with mums and dads. Some children even took on the role of teacher and taught their parents the new skills they had learnt! 

Jia Yi from 3U showed off his palaeontology skills to mum, interactively piecing together the skeletons of prehistoric creatures on the computer, whilst others put their artistic skills to the test, demonstrating how to make fossils and create prints using wax crayons and colleographs.

Year 3 definitely had an exciting afternoon of sharing and celebrating alongside their friends and families. It was not only an amazing opportunity to showcase the new skills and knowledge these young minds have acquired, but it also allowed them to include their parents in this creative and inspiring approach to the curriculum!
