We have also welcomed Miss Rolle into our class, a student teacher from St Mary’s University, who will be with us until the end of June.

We are going to 10am Mass on Monday with year 4, it would be lovely to see some friends and family there.
Our week began with a visit to Church, where we prayed The Stations of the Cross. The children were very respectful and wrote some wonderful reflections in their RE books in class. We are praying The Stations in class together too – please see the photograph below of our RE board.
We were also visited by Mr Friedlander, who teaches science at Dame Alice Owens school, on Wednesday. During his visit the class were challenged to budget, build and test a parachute and capsule that would protect an egg from cracking, when dropped from a height. The children worked brilliantly in teams and learnt a lot about gravity.
It was lovely to see so many of you at the St.Patrick’s Day assembly and celebration morning, I’m sure you’ll agree that the children read, acted and sung beautifully. Well done year 3.

Home Learning this weekend: week 4 Spring 1 list and spag.com activities online.
The class have been very sacramental this week – showing gentleness, kindness and patience towards one another. They enjoyed sharing their home learning with one another and have reflected on where they see God in the world.
The children have also been developing a deeper understanding of how to collect, interpret and present data (statistics) – this week’s mathletics home learning tasks will reflect this learning. Our new English topic is based on the book Atlas Adventures. The children seem to be enjoying learning about different countries and using prepositions and adjectives to describe what they’ve learnt.
