Welcome to Year 3's Class Page
Spring Term Topic Web
As a part of our topic 'Escape from Pompeii' we worked in small groups to create a performance poem about an earthquake using synonyms, rhyming words and onomatopoeias. We really enjoyed performing these for our classmates.
Preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation
Through role play, we explored what happens during the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We thought about times when they have wronged others and examined our conscience and this gave us an insight of what we need to do when we make the Sacrament of Reconciliation next week.
We have been using a website called Supermovers to help us learn times tables, grammar, improve our French and lots of other things. Here are a few photos of us movin' to the beat.
We explored the parable of the prodigal son through discussion and role-play. We found the lesson really interesting as we considered how the characters were feeling at different parts of the story and what they represent.
On 1st February we had our class assembly on the theme of St Thomas Aquinas and Reconciliation. We discussed how we all aspire to follow in the life of patron saint of our school. Also about how we feel and what we are doing in order for us to take the next step on our journey of faith as we prepare for the sacrament of Reconciliation.
On Sunday 27th January, pupils from Year 3 gathered at Our Lady of the Angels & St. Peter in Chains, with their family and friends for their Enrolment Mass. We pray for them as they prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
In Maths, we have been learning about the place value of three digit numbers. Have a look at how we have used place value counters to create different numbers.
We then used our knowledge of place value to order numbers along a number line.
We loved using our digit flips to find 1, 10 or 100 more or less than a 3 digit number.
In RE, we have been learning about Baptism and we acted out the rite of Baptism in groups.
We have also looked at the story of the call of Samuel to understand the importance of listening. In groups, we acted out scenes to show the consequences of not listening. Take a look below!
We have loved learning about the Stone Age as part of our topic. We created some fantastic art work using the Stone Age colours.
In PE, we have been developing the skills for basketball. We really enjoyed applying our skills to a basketball game which we played against our peers.
