This Week in Year 3
The summer term started at brisk but bracing trot, with lots of exciting things to do and a few less days to complete them! The Open Classrooms and performance to parents today brought joy to both children and adults alike and were well worth all of the clearing and sorting and practising. Thank you so much to Mrs Hegarty and Mrs Jarvis for organising such a lovely performance and for giving up their free time to help us with extra rehearsals.
We started the day by welcoming parents and grandparents into the Year 3 classrooms into the newly decorated classrooms, to look at the children’s work, and talk to the children about what they felt most proud of in their books.
The children were then able to treat their parents to a joyful performance of poetry and song. Each class had their own poem to perform and then they sang together with confident and happy voices. It was such a pleasure to watch them grow during each practice, culminating in a lovely performance on Friday morning.
The day continued with crown-making in readiness for our Coronation celebrations. We were extremely lucky to have a real crown brought into school by Violet, which had actually been worn in several previous coronations and at the most recent coronation of Queen Elizabeth by her great-great uncle, the Earl of Verulam. It was a beautiful and incredibly special item with a unique place in history and we felt privileged to have been able to try it on.

Next week is the much-anticipated Wellyboot Camp. Thank you to parents and families for supporting us with this milestone in Year 3 by organising the children in their preparation for their adventure. The children are incredibly excited and have asked a lot of questions and found out what to bring and what not to bring and were reassured that it was alright to be a little nervous but that everything would be fine. Thank you to Mrs Porter for organising this so brilliantly. The kit list and other information can be found on the Google classrooms.
Now, we just need to pray for a little sunshine!
Wishing you a wonderful Coronation weekend!
