What a busy week this has been for Year 3 – and for some of our children, continues to be tomorrow!
Much of our English was speaking and listening this week as we prepared for our class assembly. We talked about what we remembered from when we first learned about our class saint, Bernadette, and then the children chose who they would like to work with and created their own role plays about Bernadette’s visions. Their memory of what we had learned months ago was amazing and they worked really well together as teams to create each role play. We refined the role plays and practised – in spite of the weather. I was so proud of their performance and behaviour yesterday in our assembly/May procession and hope you were too. It was lovely to see so many parents there yesterday; thank you for coming along to support us.
In maths this week, we have been practising dividing 2 and 3-digits by 2, using base 10 to help us.
Our topic in RE is Energy and we have been talking this week about the events around Pentecost and imagining what the disciples might have said to the people at that time.
We attended our last Mass as a class today before the children receive their First Holy Communion and the children were beautifully behaved. Thank you to those parents who were able to join us there. Parishioners were asked to keep the class in their prayers and the children were included in the bidding prayers. Before we returned to school, we had a few moments to look at the banners and pictures of themselves that the children had painted. Fourteen of our class will be receiving their First Holy Communion this weekend so please keep them in your prayers.
Next week is International Week so if you are available to come in and share anything from your country or culture, please let me know. We look forward to celebrating our different nations.
