Battle of The Bands Homework
Read more to find out what the children have been up to in Year 3.
In Year 3 we like to celebrate a different artist every month as part of our singing assemblies.
So far this half term the children in Year 3 have really been getting stuck into their new theme, "We Are Scientists!"
As part of our RE curriculum, on the morning of Wednesday 19 December, Year 3 enjoyed the Christmas story by candle light.
The children came into the school hall, greeted by calm Christmas music, ready to hear the story of the birth of baby Jesus.
In the centre of the hall we had 70 lit candles, which created a beautiful calm and relaxing atmosphere for us all to enjoy.
Many of the children took on the roles of the different significant characters of the Christmas Story, presenting them in our school nativity scene.
Year three worked their socks off in three weeks to produce the Christmas performance, ‘Christmas Around the World’ and what an amazing job they did! The acting, singing, dancing, props and technical support were phenomenal!
As part of our learning about amazing animals, Year 3 visited the Whipsnade Zoo. Thankfully we had glorious weather and a lovely, traffic free, journey there and back.
This half term, the children in Year 3 have read Beatrix Potter’s tale ‘Peter Rabbit’. We have used this well-loved story and familiar setting to facilitate the children’s learning about different word classes.
What a way to start our new school! We have been getting to know one another, but today has really put our team building skills to the test and we have been pretty impressive.
