It has been lovely to welcome the children back to school this week as Year 3's. They have all settled in beautifully and I can already tell we are going to have a lovely year together.
This week the children have been looking at friendship and helping to solve some friendship problems we may come across. Part of this was talking about friendship tokens and how when we give out friendship tokens we receive lots back. It has been so nice to see the children then following up on this by going out of their way to be nice to their classmates and then coming to share their successes with me.
In R.E. we have been looking at Family and how we are all part of God's Family. The children shared with the class the things they like to do with their families and also thought of special times they have shared together. They made some beautiful cards to take home to say Thank You to their families for creating these memories for them.
Our topic in History this term is The Stone Age to The Iron Age. The children are very excited about this and we have started to read Stig of the Dump together to learn about Stig the caveman and his friendship with Barney. In P.E.; the children were creating movements and sequences to reflect The Flintstones characters (they are, after all, the modern Stone Age family!).
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
