This week in Year 3 ….(w/b 2.10.17)

Our theme for this week was Special Places. Many thanks for completing last week’s homework with your child as your thoughts about places that are special gave us lots to think about. The children used their senses to help them to write descriptions of how and why certain places are special to them.

The children then explored the concept of sacred and watched clips about what makes Hindu places of worship sacred.  On Friday we had a lovely morning visiting St. Michael’s church and learning how churches are sacred places for christians. The children were extremely respectful in both their behaviour and questioning while we explored the church. 

In project time the children have been working in groups to create informative posters about the features of rivers which they will be sharing with our Year 4 children soon. 

Next Friday will be our colour team challenge morning. If you have any spare newspapers, please send it into school as we need quite a lot for our challenge. 

Please could we ask you to check that your child’s name is still easy to see on their jumpers as we are beginning to get a collection of jumpers left behind with no clear names on. Thanks.
