Well…where do I start! The children have made me so unbelievably proud this week in so many ways. However, the stand out moment was when we went to Mass on Wednesday morning. The children were impeccably behaved, respectful and thoughtful. As I sat there and watched them it dawned on me how far they have come this year and how mature they are. I realised how little time we have left in Year 3 so I plan to cherish each moment with them next term. You should all be extremely proud as every one of these children brighten my day and I feel honoured to teach them. As we were leaving Mass a few members of the parish stopped me to tell me how impressed they were with their behaviour and I know they relayed this to Miss Haggerty too who was also very proud!
On Sunday we celebrate the first of two Holy Communion sessions. I am so excited to see the children take this special sacrament. They have worked hard to understand the Eucharist and are now ready to take this next step.
As usual, we have done some fabulous learning…
Maths - we have looked at subtraction by counting on
English - we have published our explanation texts including diagrams and a glossary - they look very professional!
History - we have started to learn about Hadrian’s Wall and why it was built
Science - we have finished our plants topic and have moved on to learning about animals
R.E. - we have focused heavily on the Mass this week and have also created posters for a Year of the Eucharist competition
P.E. - we have started practicing for Sports Day which will be held on the 5th May
An update on the Charity Race Night - we raised over £1000 for the Sanderson family. Thank you to all who attended and showed your support.
We were also very excited this week to welcome a new member in to our class - Baani. She has settled in beautifully and all the children have really welcomed her with open arms. Welcome Baani!
