Legrand Class – Year 3
Gilbert Legrand is an excellent digital artist and illustrator living and working in France. Legrand uses every day, household items to create his artwork, but with an amusing twist. Legrand skilfully adds human features and characteristics to each item bringing them to life! Legrand creates his work through both illustrations and 3D sculptures. 
Miss Batley chose this artist for her class as Legrand’s artwork is unique and humorous and something that she believes the children will love! Miss Batley also suggested that when replicating Legrand’s art the children’s work can be individualised by personifying an item that they use every day. Lastly, Miss Batley commented that using Legrand’s work for inspiration also gives all of the children the opportunity to create their artwork through a range of mediums including paint and clay.

Children will be given a list of Spellings every Monday which need to be learnt for the following Monday.
On Mondays the homework book is sent home. One week the work will be based on Literacy or Phonics and the following week the focus will be Maths.
From January 2017 the children will also take home a “KIRFs”  (Key Instant Recall Facts) sheet each half term to be learnt.
Reading is also very important. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as possible. We will be sending home a new book on a weekly basis. Please sign the reading record when you read with your child/children.
We have a shared library with many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.
Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly - that includes plimsolls as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.
More information about what your child is learning in school can be found on the curriculum map
