The focus this week has been remembrance. The children brought in photos and pictures of loved ones and wrote the names of family members and friends who have died and as a class we had an act of worship to pray for them in class and outside. The children showed such reverence during this time and we thank Grace, Noemi, Iustin and Hugo who lead us in prayer. We also took part in a school pilgrimage today, where we went from class to class and looked at their remembrance displays.
In Maths we have continued with our work on addition and subtraction using the Think 10 and Think 100 method. The children particularly enjoyed the dice game of Zero the Hero!
In PE we have begun our topic of gymnastics looking at travelling and balancing. The children worked hard in their groups using the PE apparatus in the Main Hall.
In English we have been looking at providing evidence for our answers when reading. We thought about what opinions we have of the spider and the fly and why we have them.
In Recorders we have begun learning for our recorder concert. There are a number of things occurring in Year 3 this half term. Please put these dates in your diaries:
Tuesday 21st November: Class Trip to the Science Museum for a Music Workshop
Wednesday 29th November: Class Trip to Westminster Cathedral to participate in the Advent Service.
Monday 11th December: Egyptian Day in school (The children will be transported to Ancient Egypt and are asked to dress up in their best Egyptian outfits in preparation for their day of learning all about the Ancient Egyptians!)
Have a lovely weekend.
