Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is an exciting transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2. We aim to make this move as smooth as possible. The children will now be enjoying the larger Key Stage 2 part of the playground, no longer being the oldest in the playground, but the youngest. The afternoon playtime will be phased out after Autumn half term, though the daily mile continues. The children also really enjoy the responsibility of bringing in their own plain(ish) pencil case and taking responsibility for their own pens, pencils, glue etc. The children no-longer receive free fruit, so if your child wishes to have some fruit during morning break time, please send them in with, for example, an apple or small pot of grapes. A carton of milk is still available to purchase for morning break time (see the office for details). Just a reminder that school dinners are only free in Key Stage 1. As last year, link books and water bottles need to come in every day and we always appreciate boxes of tissues. We look forward to working closely with you and your child over the next year.
Autumn 2 Term Learning - 2020
What a busy half term in Year 3!
Father Dominic led us in Rejoice sessions on Holy Souls and Advent. We have done our best to learn the two prayers that he asked us to. We participated in online Masses and we are working our way through the class so that everyone has a turn in leading a class prayer session.
We like a Maths game in year 3 and have continued to play as many as possible.
It was fun trying to meet our buddies in Nursery via a Teams meeting.
The class enjoy painting and found the Stone Age cave ‘painting’ charcoal work great fun. They followed instructions to make 3D paper woolly mammoths and invented their own paper crafts during wet play times.
Football P.E. lessons have been enjoyed and all have been sharing and improving their great skills.
We had some fun on Children in Need day and Odd Sock Day.
We also enjoyed two marble treats – Well done children!
Thank you everyone.
Autumn 1 Term Learning - 2020
Well done to all the children in Year 3! You should all feel very proud of yourselves. It has been a very busy half term and you have coped very well with the new routines and classroom layout that we find ourselves using this year.
We have enjoyed many maths games, watching TenTen assemblies, joining in live streamed masses, playing tennis, joining in with Ms McBride’s teams assemblies, taking part in our Judaism workshop, wearing something yellow to school on Mental Health Day, working on our resilience, praying the Rosary during October, role playing a baptism and looking great on International Day!
