Year 3 Class Collective Worship

Today we gathered for our first class collective worship. The children thought carefully to plan their collective worship and this was led by Paityn, Ellie, Reece and Harry. We gathered in a circle and passed around a cross while we thought about Jesus and his presence in our lives. We thought carefully about the words of St. Paul and enjoyed singing This Little Light of Mine. A lovely collective worship Year 3.

Year 3

Year 3 have worked extremely hard this week getting used to their new routine. The children have loved starting new topics for all of their subjects and learning new things! This week we started to explore our homes topic in RE, where we talked about what makes an ideal home and how these things can make us feel. The class also planned a worship which they are looking forward to leading next week in class. We cannot wait to share some of the excellent work we have been taking part in.

Year 3 Year of Mary Liturgy

Tremendous Timing in Year 3

Today the children in Year 3 began to time events in seconds and minutes. The children practised counting to a minute with their eyes closed and realised this is actually quite difficult. The children then used stopwatches on the iPads to time themselves taking part in a range of activities. They had a great time making towers of cubes, counting to 100 and completing head, shoulders, knees and toes 20 times.

Year 3 Dragon Dance Workshop

Today the children in Year 3 took part in a dance workshop. The children are taking part in a Dragon Festival on 27th May 2018 where the children are going to make their own dragon to parade with. The children in Year 3 were very excited when they learned that they were also going to move like a dragon. The children were taught a dance to help their movements in the parade and were then set the challenge in groups to create their own moves that they can use. We cannot wait to show off these moves in the parade and we hope lots of people are going to come and see us.

Mona Lisa Masterpiece

As part of our reading week the children listened to the story of Leonardo and the Flying Boy. The children really enjoyed listening to the story and learned more about Leonardo da Vinci. The children were then set a challenge to create a display in a day. The children coloured in pieces of the Mona Lisa and then pieced this back together to create their own masterpiece. Their work was amazing!
