We have had a very exciting week in Year 3...I don't know where to start!
The children were very lucky to have an artist come in to our class on Tuesday morning to give a workshop to the children and to ask them to create some pieces of art for a Wordpool event coming up in July (a leaflet has come home with your child today). There was a circus theme and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Similarly, we were thrilled to welcome a lady called Emily in to our school this morning who is a storyteller. Emily shared with the school a history of the Blackpool Tower Circus through a wonderful story about a girl called Mary - ask the children to share this story with you. The children then had the opportunity to write a postcard describing an act from the circus, as if they had been in the story like Mary. These postcards will be on display at the Wordpool event in July in Stanley Park along with their circus artwork they completed earlier in the week.
On Thursday we had the privilege of going to St Mary's for a Mass with other Year 3 classes from our local Catholic schools. Our new Bishop, Paul Swarbrick, led the Mass and it really was a very special occasion. Our Year 3 class led the post communion reflection with a beautiful rendition of 'Love, Love' which they performed so well. After the Mass, we had a picnic lunch and then had the chance to play outside in Christ the King's wonderful outdoor area. I was very proud of all the children who represented our school beautifully.
In Maths this week we have continued to learn about the grid method when multiplying.
In English we have started to look at a new text - How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth - and will be creating our own instructions based on this next week. As per my text earlier this week, if the children could please bring in an empty and clean milk carton on Monday that would be great as we are going to be making our very own woolly mammoths.
No homework this week - however, please ensure your child is reading every day and making notes accordingly.
No awards were handed out this week due to just returning from half term and our visit from the storyteller this morning.
Have a wonderful weekend!
