In English this week, we have have continued with our class book Flotsam. The children enjoyed exploring the pictures of this wordless book to understand the story. Year 3 particularly liked creating their own image about what else the underwater camera could capture. In Maths we have been working on unit (fractions with a numerator of 1) and non-unit fractions.  This week the children have also investigated the relationship between the size of the parts and the whole.  For example, the larger the denominator the smaller the part as the whole has been divided into more equal parts.

Swimming was very exciting on Wednesday as Year 3 took to the pool in their pyjamas to learn survival skills. Next week will be the last session and will be a fun swim.

We have continued to rehearse for The Stations of the Cross service that will take place on Tuesday at 7pm. Year 3 are becoming much better at remembering the lyrics but do please continue to encourage your child to practise the words at home.  They have been given their own song sheet to help them learn the words.  We have another set in school for them to use during the practises so they do not need to bring their song sheet back into school.

Today we were treated to the Year 3 and 4 music performers. Well done to our singers, pianists and violinists:  Erin, Seraphina, Sofia, Sive, Christian, Joesph C, Amilia, Noemi, Iustin, Leonie, Dafne, Anna and  Joseph S. We are very lucky and fortunate to have such talented musicians!

Photos taken of their performance will be added to next week’s blog. 

Next week, as part of our Lenten Fundraising, the class will be going on a walk with the Year 4 children.  Please can you send in their wellingtons as they may be treading through muddy terrain! The children are to wear their full school uniform to school with school shoes and be ready to ‘swap’ their shoes for wellingtons when they  are going out.  Thank you.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Mrs Lines and Mrs McNamara
