This is certainly true for myself and will hopefully be true of many others in Year 3 over this next term.
This week, Year 3 started their new International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topic ‘Visual Representations’. It began with an entry point involving a hunt for art around the secondary campus. All the children in the year group were very impressed with the quality and variety of the art on display and it made them think very carefully of how and why the artist created each piece of art.
This IPC topic has a strong focus on art and encourages children to challenge their ideas and think about what visual art is and how people from across the world express ideas differently. After Tet, Year 3 will begin specialist art lessons with the help of Ms Charlotte. They will be looking at a different art genre each week and learning skills to create art in that style. Additionally, everyone is also excited about the upcoming art trip to the Ho Chi Minh City art gallery in the centre of town.
I have no doubt that this term will be filled with learning, creativity and above all fun!
