Year 3 Hope, Right Angles and Being Engaged

A huge thank you to Coventry Engage team, Mr Alay, Mr Semi and Mr Donnelly. Over the last 6 weeks they have provided the children with some really ‘engaging’ lessons based on values. The lessons were fun, thought provoking, physically challenging and memorable.

Continuing our work on right angles, here are some of the children searching for right angles in the environment.

A week of hope during Advent. The children have been completing their Advent Kindness Diaries. Please discuss these with them over the weekend.

We ended a very busy, busy, week with a calm prayer service of Hope. We gathered around our own homemade Advent Wreath and created Hope Stars to remind us of the hope that the birth of Jesus brings to us.

thank you for your continued support.

Advent and Right Angles

Another busy week.

Getting to grips with right angles.

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our Advent assembly. Practice time was limited and several children stepped in at the last moment to help. Your presence makes a real difference to the children. Miss McGinn and I are very proud of the children and were delighted with their performance. A really love way to begin the season of Advent.

 

Busily creating our Advent Wreath.

                      

Thank you for your continued support.

Rocks! Rocks! and Top Trumps in Year 3

Inspired by the work of Andrew Goldsworthy, the children collected a range of rocks,pebbles and stones from around the school grounds.

Back in class and working in small groups the children created their own temporary sculptures.

The children demonstrated scientific skill during investigation experiments.

They we investigating the properties of different types of rocks and soil. They had great fun and were very enthusiastic. they completed the scratch test and investigations to sort rocks into permeable and impermeable. Ask them to explain their findings

As part of their study Jurassic Park the children have created Dinosaur Top Trump cards in computing. With help from Mr Youson each child had created their own unique set of cards. They really enjoyed challenging each other to a game.

Finally a huge thank you for your continued support.

See you next week

Brandon Marsh

What a lovely day spent at Brandon Marsh! We learnt all about bees, flowers and navigation as well as building our own dens, exploring and taking risks.

Big thank you to All Sorts who allowed 10 of our children to borrow their hats for the scorching hot temperatures and the children who happily shared their suncream – it was a huge help! Well done to Year Three for great behaviour today, we all learnt lots!

A beautiful end to a hectic week

The children in Year Three had some visitors today. Children from Year 1 came to join us in a prayer service where we split in half between the classes. We focused on peace, finding peace in our hearts, our school and our world. Year 3 were super role models for the year 1 children and they all behaved beautifully!

We have had another very busy week. We know the children are getting tired and we are very proud of how they are still putting their all into our class activities. Hopefully this continued next week. Only four days left!

A reminder about next week in Monday we have our trip to the Herbert Art Gallery. Children must bring a packed lunch with them as we will be there all day. On Thursday we are having a pyjama day with Christmas activities in the morning and a film in the afternoon. Me and Miss Fox will provide crisps and hot chocolate as our Christmas present to the children.

Have a lovely weekend!
