Healthy snacks

Here are a few photos from Tuesday when the children had great fun making their healthy snacks!

It has been another busy couple of weeks in Year 3. In English the children have been working hard finishing their autobiographies, which are looking lovely and will be on display during parents evening next week. We have also started our new topic looking at the features of fables.

Last week we had great fun making fruit salads, as part of our DT topic. Thank you to all the parents who were involved in preparing the food before the day or those that helped out on the day itself. The children had great fun and produced some lovely fruit salads. 

In RE we have started to think about baptism. This week we looked at the Bible story of Jesus' own baptism and wrote a diary entry as if we were one of the crowd watching this event. We will now look at the different elements within a baptism service and some of the symbols within this special sacrament. Thank you to everyone who has brought in a photo of the children's own baptisms - we will be also using these within our RE lessons next week.

We look forward to seeing you all at parents evening next week and sharing how your wonderful children have settled in to Year 3. I think they are all ready for a half term break but we are all very proud of how they have coped with their first term in KS2.

Have a lovely weekend!

WB 01.10.2018

The start to this week was a very active one with the children taking part in a House fitness afternoon on Monday. The children did brilliantly and collected lots of points for their Houses.

Thank you to all those who have sent in photos for the children's autobiographies. The children have been working very hard on them and you will have an opportunity to see the final products during parents evening. Next week we start our new topic looking at fables.

The children have really enjoyed beginning french lessons and Mrs Luckhurst has been thrilled with the level of enthusiasm shown by the class. We have also enjoyed visiting the new music room for our music lessons and enjoying the opportunity that the space provides for them to be creative. Some of the children have been really keen to share the music they are learning outside school. It is wonderful that they are eager to share their music with others and we are therefore creating a rota that will allow 1 or 2 children each lesson the opportunity to perform to the rest of the class.

Today we finished our RE topic looking at families and homes. The children have spent time thinking about what makes a house a home, have read passages from the Bible written by St Paul and the advice he gave families, as well as reflecting on the Holy family and how they gave us a wonderful example of an ideal family. Next week we will begin our new topic 'promises'.

Next Wednesday the children are making fruit salad in DT. Please remember to send in the 2 fruits that your child needs to bring in.

On a final note, most children have been very good at remembering to bring in their homework in on time. Just a reminder that reading planners should be in school every day, not just on their book changing day, and that homework is due in every Tuesday. Thank you for your support with this.

Have a good weekend!
