If we live by truth and in love, we shall grow in Christ

Year 3 Friday 3rd November 2023

Year 3 have come back from half term in a very creative manner. In English, we have been looking at the features of playscripts, proverbs and the use of adverbs to create effective stage direction. In Maths, we have continued with our written method of addition and subtraction, and we will use this to help us with next week's problem solving. In our shared reading, we have been looking at the Little People, Big Dream series which explores a range of famous and important people and teaches us about their lives and stories. In RE, we have be looking at the importance of promises and the different types of promises we can make between individuals and groups. In PE, we have started our new topic of gymnastics. The children have enjoyed learning new actions and putting these together to form a sequence of movements. 

On Thursday, we were lucky enough to have a visitor from Bantu Arts come in and teach us some African dancing and drumming. The children listened and responded well in the workshop and managed to learn a whole dance and drumming routine, which they  then performed to the whole school in the afternoon. The whole day was very enjoyable and educational.
