Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

We have had a great start to Year 3, all of the students have settled in well and are embracing all our new systems in school.  We have been learning about our class saint, Saint John Paul II and we are looking forward to an exciting year when many in the class will be receiving their First Holy Communion. We hope that everyone will continue to enjoy a successful term!

Our Learning

First Holy Communion

 

Father Charles visited today to celebrate mass and Corpus Christi with our family and friends.

On Friday 17th May we visited Colchester Castle. We had a wonderful day and learned a lot about the Romans, we even had the chance to build our own Roman Villa!

Today we spent some time with Year 4 and we asked them questions about what will happen at our First Holy Communion. Year 4 were really helpful and have made those of us that are making our First Communion this year feel more ready. Thank you Year 4!

The Lost Son

Still image for this video
As part of our topic 'The Sacrament of Reconciliation' we have looked at the story of the Lost son. The class were asked to retell the story for homework.

Warburtons visit - On 3rd December we had a visit from Warburtons. We learned about how bread is made, which foods we need for a healthy, balanced diet and then we all made our own sandwich. It was very enjoyable and we all learned a lot.

Decorate the classroom day - We had lots of fun making Gingerbread biscuits to sell at the Christmas Fayre. They were delicious!

This afternoon some scientists from GSK came and taught us about bones and our bodies. We made skeletons and learned the scientific names for them. We also talked about the organs in our bodies that our skeletons protect. It was fun!

Father Charles visited Year 3 as part of our topic on The Christian Family. We were able to ask him some very interesting questions and we now know lots about him, including how many brothers and sisters he has, how many countries he has visited and when he became a priest. He also talked to us about what it means to receive Jesus at Holy Communion and why it is an important part of being part of The Christian Family.

Visit from Portals to the Past. Our visitor taught us all about The Stone Age and we got to touch some amazing things like a tusk from a woolly mammoth, a tooth from a sabre tooth tiger and a fossilised hyena 'dropping'! It was a fantastic day and the children were wonderful, they listened very carefully and asked some interesting questions.

"I learned that there was an age called the Copper Age between the Stone Age and the Bronze Age."

 

"I enjoyed learning about the man who was found in the ice 5000 years after he died."

 

"I learned lots about what life was like in the Stone Age."

 

"I learned that in the Stone Age they used flint to make weapons as well as tools."
