Advent Survival Afternoon
Year 3 were so lucky as they got to take part in an Advent Survival Afternoon where we discussed the meaning of Advent and what the true meaning of Christmas is all about. Kev and Heather were super impressed with our knowledge and key words we used in our answers!
We then competed in races to create the Christmas Story and even did a Prayer Walk for the first time where we each had a different part to play. We finished off this fantastic afternoon by lighting a fire and making s'mores which were very yummy! What a great afternoon Year 3!
Football's coming home!
Yesterday afternoon, we were super lucky and were able to watch England's first football match in the World Cup. To demonstrate our support, we all came in wearing the famous England colours, some of us even came in our football strips!
We celebrated hugely every time England scored and were overjoyed with the end result, we even held up our trophy in hopes that we will go the whole way.
During the match, we coloured in pictures of our favourite players, completed football crosswords and even designed our own football shirt! What a brilliant afternoon.
As part of Anti-Bullying week, Year 3 have had the pleasure of taking part in an Anti-Bullying workshop! We discussed different types of bullying such as physical, emotional and cyber. As the final task, we then got into groups and performed a role play whereby 'a child was being bullied'. The children were then asked how they can change their role play scenario to make it a positive experience. the workshop was amazing and all of Year 3 listened to the importance of this message and demonstrated great maturity in their answers. Well done Year 3!
In order to prepare for the whole school Liturgical Prayer on Friday, Year 3 created some of their very own poppies by using egg cartons!
They cut them very carefully then painted them to perfection ready to place on our wreath. We spoke about the importance of wearing a poppy this week and on Remembrance Sunday as we painted. The wreath looks amazing Year 3, great job.
