We have ended this week with a beautiful day here in school. This morning we went over to Church for a Mass celebrating the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. The children were beautifully behaved. We then took part in a procession back to school where Father brought the blessed sacrament in to the hall. He did this by putting it in a special vessel called a monstrance. Just after break our class went to the hall to take part in adoration. We silently prayed to Jesus and thought about Him filling us with his love. The children made me so proud. They were reflective and respectful throughout. Just before lunch we went back to the hall while Father performed Benediction (blessing). It truly was a lovely morning.
We welcomed Ellie the elf to school this week. She has been hiding from the children and they have been enjoying trying to find her. Each day the children are also opening up a door of our advent calendar and they are enjoying listening to the story of Mary’s Little Donkey. Whilst we have been getting in to the Christmas spirit in Year 3, we have also been remembering the true meaning of Christmas and have written our advent promises.
This week has also seen us starting to prepare for our Advent Service on the 19th December at 2.30pm. I was blown away by how our first rehearsal went earlier this week. I am excited to see the final result when they perform for you.
In Maths this week we have been looking at doubling and halving.
In Science we conducted an experiment on friction - ask the children to tell you their findings!
In English we have carried on with our work on information texts and have also started to complete our star reading tests (these will give the children a new zpd).
In Geography we focused on one European country and created a fact file.
Awards this week:
Golden & Writing: these will be handed out in assembly on Monday
Please could I kindly ask you all to check your children’s PE hoodies. Isabelle’s has gone missing (it is named) and we are wondering whether it has been picked up by mistake. Thank you.
Have a lovely weekend.
