This week, Year 3 became architects and designed their own Roman temples.
They used cardboard to create a triangular pediment, which was decorated with a colourful mosaic pattern to reflect the Romans’ fondness of decor. Afterwards, they rolled paper for the columns and drew vertical lines on each to show how the columns were attractively fluted.
To make their temples structurally sound, the Year 3 children used triangular supports to hold their pediment in place and ensured the capital part of their columns was cut to enable the pediment to stick to it.
Overall, the children showed great artistic skill and perseverance when constructing their temples and excellent partner work – well done Year 3!
