This week in Year 3
Welcome back! We have all returned to school rested and ready to go! This is a busy half term and such an exciting one!
In English, we have started a new book, appropriate to the week of Halloween – a spooky story about a mysterious and, perhaps ghostly, marsh.
We had great fun exploring the character of Annie and we used Hot-Seating to ask her questions and consider how different her life is from ours.
You will have received an email about our forthcoming Egyptian Day on Friday 2 December.
We are very excited to allow ourselves to be transported back in time to the banks of the River Nile and enjoy a day of interactive learning. We can’t wait to see the costumes! In the email, we have asked for a number of adult volunteers to help support the very hands-on activities. If you are able, please do fill in the form and start thinking about your costume!
Matches vs Heath Mount
The boys and girls of Year 3 enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of matches against Heath Mount on Thursday. They all played very well and the rain kept away for the afternoon.
Thank you, once again, to Jack for his excellent photography, which you can see below:
Dates for your Diaries
This term is also filled with Christmas preparations and Year 3 will soon be starting to think about our Christingle Service on Friday 25 November at about 1530. You are all very welcome to attend, so please do put the date in your diaries. The popularity of attendees last year means that it will now be held in the Performance Hall. We will be putting more information in the Google Classrooms in due course.
Two more dates for your diaries are the House Matches and Christmas Fayre on Saturday 3 December and the two performances of our Christmas Production on either Thursday 8 December (1500-1600) or Friday 9 December (0910-1010).
Sasha competed a few weeks ago in the individual County Gymnastics Championship and during the October half term holidays she also competed in the County Teams Championship with 2 members of her gymnastics squad. A huge congratulations to Sasha and her team members for coming 1st in both competitions, what a brilliant achievement.
