This week has been a busy one upon our return from half term.

The children have embraced their learning well.

In Maths the children have been learning about 3-D shapes and they have had many opportunities to create 3-D shapes and describe them using vocabulary such as faces, vertices and edges.  We have spoken about a cuboid, prism, sphere, cylinder, square-based pyramids to name a few and each day the children have had the opportunity to make their own 3-D shapes.

In RE our focus has been the Blessed Sacrament and the children have spent time learning about St Dominic Savia (who had a deep devotion to the eucharist) and Blessed Imelda (who longed to receive the Eucharist from the time she was a very young child).  The children have designed their own monstrances, learning that the monstrance is an important part of Eucharistic Adoration and today, they had the privilege of leading the Blessed Sacrament Procession to the church.

Yesterday, two teams of children from Year 3 took part in the Hertfordshire Maths Challenge.  This is a friendly, online, inter-school competition that gives the children the opportunity to apply their mathematics knowledge and teamwork skills to solve problems and answer challenging questions, putting their reasoning skills to the test. Well done to the two teams.  We await their results from the Hertfordshire Maths Team.

From next week, our PE days will be Tuesdays (Tennis) and Thursdays,  so the children need to come in PE kits on these days please.

Tuesday, 11th June 2024 is Sports Day. Your child will need to be in their PE kit, wear a sun hat and have their water bottle! Ks2 events start in the afternoon and finish shortly before the end of the day @ 3.15pm.

Next week is also Healthy Eating week, so the class will be participating in daily events as well as food tasting and will learn about the 5 ways of keeping healthy. Contributions towards these events can be made via School Comms.

 

Have a wonderful weekend.
